David Peace at Japan Now North Sheffield University

20th February 2019

5:30pm – A View of the City: David Peace in conversation with the University of Sheffield’s Mark Pendleton

An evening of discussions around Japan in literature and visual art, this special event features Yorkshire-born and Tokyo-based novelist David Peace and a number of visual artists participating in a group exhibition at Sheffield’s Bloc Projects.

One of Granta’s Best Young British Novelists in 2003, Yorkshire-born writer David Peace has made Tokyo his home since 1994. In recent years, his writing has shifted to address his new home in Japan, with a trilogy of detective novels set in early postwar Japan and the recently released Patient X, which explores early 20th century Japanese history through the figure of writer Ryunosuke Akutagawa.
