Pedigree Mongrel: An Evening with Jonathan Meades

'Lime sorbet tastes of immeasurable loss.'

Writer and film-maker Jonathan Meades joined us at the Bookshop to present and discuss Pedigree Mongrel (Test Centre), a new album composed of specially-recorded readings from his books Pompey (1993), Museum Without Walls (2012) and An Encyclopaedia of Myself (2014). Combined with the distinctive soundscapes of Mordant Music, Pedigree Mongrel is both a unique retrospective of Meades’s fictional and essayistic writings, and a new and significant standalone work.
