How did we get here and why does it hurt so much? Both writers have examined the afflictions of our modern age with compassion, and some fascinating literary links. Marina’s Insomnia engages with the enemy of sleep and asks if it can arouse our creativity. Vybarr’s Primate Change shows how the world we made has continually been remaking us.

Marina and Vybarr will be interviewed by Mary-Ann Ochota.
