After the storming success of ‘Heathcliff vs Darcy: Who’s the Bigger Sh*t?’ followed by ‘They F*ck You Up Your Mum and Dad: Literature’s Worst Parents’ and most recently, ‘Literary Top Trumps: Which Fictional Character Could Do a Better Job in The White House?’, Sebastian Faulks returns with another stellar panel ready to do bookish battle. Alongside Sebastian, 2020 reigning champ Caroline O’Donoghue, award-winning author, journalist and podcaster Elizabeth Day and critic and novelist Anthony Quinn will use their wit and wiles to try to expose some of literature’s most esteemed characters (Jay Gatsby? Holden Caulfield? Linda Radlett?) for the dullards they truly are. Chaired by Caroline Hutton.
