Family Business: A Memoir with Peter Conradi
Monday 20 May, 7pm
Tate South Lambeth Library
Family Business is a combination of social, family and personal history and the daringly open and original autobiography of a gifted and scrupulous biographer.
In it, he recounts his European Jewish forebears’ journeys from modest beginnings to prosperous assimilatedAnglo-Jewish life, his own difficultieswith his sexuality and his discovery around the same time of two commitments that have dominated his life: to Buddhism and to writing.
Peter Conradi has written or reviewed for the TLS, New Statesman, FT,Spectator, Independent and Guardian. His BBC appearances have included Radio 3 Nightwaves, Radio 4 Front Row, Something Understood and The Today Programme, and a special edition of BBC TV’s Omnibus.
