Discussing William Burroughs's The Naked Lunch

  • Dec 18, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Celebrate the festive season with a postmodern flourish!

We will be discussing William Burroughs's surreal, experimental novel Naked Lunch in the traditional setting of an old-fashioned pub located in Victoria, SW1. Please do join us for food, drink and discussion to sate even the hungriest minds and bellies!

£10 secures you a place at the table and a Christmas buffet, including turkey sandwiches, mince pies and pigs in blankets (non meat eaters also catered for!). Drinks available at the bar downstairs, of course.

(Please get in touch with me directly if you have any concerns about paying the deposit using PayPal and your credit or debit card and we'll try and work something out!)

Look forward to seeing some intellectual revellers for a feast of yuletide discussion.

And you can purchase the book here

    A most delightful evening. I won't be attending any meetups in the foreseeable future but stay a member of this group. If you ever find yourself in Copenhagen, do give me a shout and we'll have a mini-meet.

      Thank you, I for one will take you up on that. Also, I think you must have got my quiche, as I definitely got your chicken!

      That sounds delightful. No quiche in my casa so wonder what happened?

    It seems I might be finishing later than expected today so might not be able to join after all. If I don't I hope you will enjoy the evening and wish you all a merry Christmas. See you in January hopefully! DX

    I had to go to 7 different shops before I managed to procure a copy of the book - but regrettably I haven't managed to finish it. I'll still be there for christmas celebrations.
    See you all later.

    • Richard I.

      Don't worry about that, Dolores: you'll probably arrive just as the food does! Look forward to seeing you then.

    why does it say 'rsvp closed' for this one? If I'm in London, I'd like to attend

    October 28, 2013

    • Richard I.

      An excellent question! I am not opening RSVPs until venue and cost are confirmed; seems unfair to make people pay a deposit otherwise!

      October 29, 2013

    • Perle

      Ah - ok - that explains it - makes sense
