He was polymath, a polyglot and a pain in the neck. Immensely talented and insufferably egotistical, he chain smoked for England and wrote more words than Dickens, Wells and Trollope combined.
Manchester was his city, which he loved so much he moved to Monaco. As the great man may himself have said: “the future’s clockwork; the future’s orange.”
The event begins at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation venue and cafe at 11am with a tour of the archive. At around 11.45am, Ed Glinert will then lead the walking tour around the great man’s Manchester haunts. Visit the New Manchester Walks website for booking information.
