Will Self

Will Self and I appeared on stage together to have a good time discussing the issues of life and death in an event hosted by Intelligence Squared.  For those of you who don't know, Will is the author of edgy literary novels such as The Book of Dave, Great Apes, and How the Dead Live. He's also wickedly smart. The event took place at Conway Hall in London.
