The Folio Academy Sessions, All the World’s a Story

Every day, each of us hears and constructs stories that help us make sense of the world.


Every day, each of us hears and constructs stories that help us make sense of the world. Narrative is not solely the preserve of the writer but the very foundation of understanding and communication, giving shape to our frequently shapeless lives. And some – for example barristers, politicians, songwriters, artists, journalists – depend on it every day in their work. Award-winning novelist Kevin Barry, whose most recent work, Beatlebone, won the Goldsmiths’ Prize, opens the weekend with a discussion of narrative in various fields: literature, law, music and art. He is joined by three guests who understand its power: human rights barrister Geoffrey Robertson QC, singer and writer Tracey Thorn and sculptor and artist Cornelia Parker.
