All Families Are Psychotic


Perennial Greenbelt favourite Dr Andrew Tate leads literature lovers on a journey into the homes of famous families from fiction who are dysfunctional, oppressive and downright nightmarish. Tate’s talk encompasses narratives from Ancient Greece to Austen; Shakespeare to The Simpsons; Douglas Coupland via Charles Dickens.

Dr Andrew Tate lectures in English and American Literature at Lancaster University. His two books published last year, Douglas Coupland (Manchester University Press) and Contemporary Fiction and Christianity reflect his interest in postmodern fiction, theory and spirituality.
