Literary Lunchtime with Will Eaves

  • Quaker Meeting House 7 Park St, Hillsborough BT26 6AL (map)


Will Eaves’s novel Murmur takes as its starting point the conviction and chemical castration of brilliant Enigma Code-breaking mathematician Alan Turing. It’s an inventive imagining of the mind of a genius; a heart-breaking and thought-provoking dive into the human consciousness.

Will Eaves is the author of five novels and two collections of poetry. He was the Arts Editor of the Times Literary Supplement from 1995 to 2011 and now teaches at the University of Warwick. Murmur was shortlisted for the Goldsmiths Prize in 2018.
