A rather good article in the Tablet by Mardean Isaac, who uses a walk with Will in London as a way of investigating the psychogeography of the old Jewish East End.
Will in conversation with Sylvain Bourmeau about his latest book, Will, and many other things at Villa Gillet for the recent Littérature Live Festival (translated in French).
Will and Melanie Challenger, the author of How to Be Animal: A New History of What it Means to Be Human, consider the notion that at the heart of the human condition there’s a complex struggle with being animal in this Bridges to the Future episode by the RSA.
Will features quite heavily in this rather good 1999 documentary about Bret Easton Ellis.
Listen to Will talking for about half an hour on Afternoon Edition (available for 28 days) on BBC Radio 5 live here at the 1hr 11 minute mark, taking in the “muted” general election, autism, how the smartphone has changed us and finishing his trilogy of modernist novels with Phone in which “a new technology is visited upon us and a new conflict ensues and what ensues from that … is a new form of mental illness”. He also reveals that he’ll be recording an audiobook of Phone and that his next book will be a memoir.
Will was also on the Robert Elms show on BBC Radio London, which you can listen to here at the 1hr 10min mark (available for 28 days); an FT podcast; and Front Row on Radio 4 (at the 6 minute mark) here in which he reads a short passage from Phone, taking in James Joyce, the anti-psychiatry movement and why Alzheimer’s might be a sane response to today’s world.
