Literary Festival 2012: Noughties: Narrating the Student Experience
Speaker(s): Ben Masters
Recorded on 2 March 2012 in Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building.
Ben Masters' debut novel Noughties examines the highs and lows of modern student life, which reach a climax for his characters on the last night of university. In this conversation with LSE student Aleona Krechetova, he will discuss whether there is such a thing as a ‘standard’ student experience, and how he approached the question of 'relatability' when writing the book.
Ben Masters is twenty-five years old. He was born in Northampton and went to Oxford University in 2005. He is currently working on a PhD in English at Cambridge University.
