Noughties: narrating the student experience

LSESU Literature Society Literary Festival event

Date: Friday 2 March 2012 
Time: 5-6.30pm
Venue: Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building
Speaker: Ben Masters

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.
