The ICA Talks package consists of 1,000 hours of recordings of events at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, in the Mall, London – made in the period 1981-1994.

Here are just a few of the talks I found that look especially interesting:

Michael Ondaatje (Discussion and readings of ‘Running in the Family’ and ‘Coming through Slaughter’)

Bohumil Hrabal and Julian Barnes, in conversation

Christine Brooke-Rose and A. S. Byatt, in conversation

Juan Goytisolo and Chris Rawlence, in conversation

William Gaddis and Malcolm Bradbury, in conversation
