Murder in Tokyo: David Peace

Norwich is a City of Literature

Event Date: 11 September 2021
Author / Presenters: David Peace

We are delighted to welcome David Peace, the award-winning author of the Red Riding Quartet, GB84 and The Damned Utd, for a dissection of his ‘astonishing’ (Guardian) new novel, Tokyo Redux – a thrilling fictionalisation of one of Japan’s most enduring and haunting mysteries.

At the forefront of contemporary international fiction, David is known for his unflinching and highly innovative storytelling. Tokyo Redux is the final instalment in the popular Tokyo Trilogy, which explores the true crimes that shaped Japan in the aftermath of the Second World War.

David will be joined in conversation by Tom Benn to discuss how he balances detailed research with carefully crafted thrills and multi-dimensional characters to create a gripping neo-noir story. They will also look more widely at Peace’s career and how his work has influenced and resonated beyond the page.
