• Duchamp Versus Einstein - An Evening With Etan Ilfeld

    Online event

    Watkins Books are delighted to host a very special evening with our owner Etan Ilfeld, as he joins us to talk about his debut novelette, 'Duchamp Versus Einstein'. Inspired by the real-life letters of Marcel Duchamp, Duchamp Versus Einstein is a unique and utterly compelling amalgam of art history, sci fi, and historical fiction, co-written in close collaboration with award-winning science fiction novelist Christopher Hinz. A mysterious being sets the stage for the chess match to end all chess matches, between Marcel Duchamp and Albert Einstein. Each on the cusp of their greatest contributions to mankind, the pair are plucked from their respective timelines and brought together to battle. Having pulled invisible strings to unite them, traversing space and everything in-between, this enigmatic figure pits the two against one another, and watches as the game plays out... Etan will be talking about the inspiration behind the book, giving a reading, and answering questions. Etan Ilfeld is the owner of Watkins Books, the Mind Sports Olympiad, a US Chess Federation National Chess Master, and the inventor of diving chess. He has previously written 'Beyond Contemporary Art'.

    Please note that although dates or timings have not changed, this will now be a live online session hosted by Lucy via Zoom. If you would like to receive the link to this Zoom session a day in advance of the presentation, please send us a message. Lucy Oliver's new book Tessellations: Patterns of Life and Death in the Company of a Master (Matador, published 28th March 2020) is an unusual, fascinating account interweaving memoir, biography, wisdom teaching and metaphysical philosophy to present a rare illustration of how oral tradition of knowledge can be transmitted in modern Britain under the guidance of an extraordinary sage. Tessellations is the first direct, personal account of over forty years under the direction of her inspiring and authentic spiritual teacher, who insisted on obscurity while he lived. As the text reveals, life around such an individual is never dull. At this free Watkins Books talk, Lucy Oliver will discuss Tessellations and its embodiment of some of the founding principles of spiritual teaching, removing some of the mystique and superstition which have encrusted traditional esoteric work. “A captivating, affectionate, and utterly factual account of the man who is the closest thing to a Master that I have ever met.” – Richard Smoley, author and editor of Quest Journal About the author: Born in Australia and living in the UK since 1972, Lucy Oliver has a lifetime’s direct engagement in the esoteric spiritual path.
