Will Self and Hanif Kureishi explore the experience of passing on much of their work to the national collection.

Will Self reflects on having his archive newly acquired by the British Library. His archive includes drafts of novels, his cartoons, a full hard-drive, family documents and letters received from other writers. At this event he meets Hanif Kureishi, also archived at the Library, to explore the experience of passing on much of one’s life’s work to the national collection, where it is joining that of Harold Pinter, John Berger, J G Ballard, Joan Bakewell, and many others.
