Euro-Crime at Goldsmiths’ College

Euro-Crime at Goldsmiths

Writers Patrick McGuinness, Christopher MacLehose, Mike Phillips, and Peter Lee-Wright (chair) discuss, at Goldsmiths’ College, the case of crime fiction as the real European currency.

Thursday 24 November 2011, 17:00, LG02, 1 New Academic Building, Goldsmiths College, University of London, New Cross, London SE14 6NW
Free entrance

From the astonishing success of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo books (and films, and US re-makes) and multiple Wallander TV series, to the Danish Killing and French Spiral TV series: is crime fiction the real European currency? Romanian crime fiction reveals another side: it subverted censorship.

On the panel, writers Patrick McGuinness, Christopher MacLehose, Mike Phillips, and Peter Lee-Wright (chair) will discuss, among other things, the English translations of three very different Romanian authors: George Arion, Bogdan Hrib, and Oana Stoica Mujea. The three Romanian writers will be present in the UK later on at the end of November / beginning of December for a series of book events.

In 2011 Profusion initiates a brand new publishing venture featuring a series of Romanian crime fiction, along with a shocking true crime story. These books are different. They are thrilling, and they also illuminate the reality of a secret Romania, once behind the Iron Curtain, now a vital European partner.

Behind the tumult of the new, lies a past of intrigue, terror and pitch black comedy. The Profusion Crime Series outlines the map and blazes a trail through this hidden history.
