  1. Imagined Futures

    “Those who don’t remember history are doomed to repeat it. Those who can’t imagine the future are doomed to fuck it up.”

    Lauren Beukes explores how fiction is a model our brains run to explore other lives and possibilities, overcome issue fatigue and fire our cultural imagination.

    Lauren Beukes is the author of Zoo City, which won the 2011 Arthur C. Clarke award. That’s because it’s bloody brilliant. Seriously, if you haven’t read it, grab a copy now.

    Her first novel, the excellent near-future dystopia Moxyland, was set in Cape Town, where Lauren lives with her husband and daughter. Her next book, The Shining Girls, will be set in Chicago and feature a time-travelling serial killer.

    As well as being a novelist, Lauren is a journalist and has collaborated on television and comic book projects.

  3. Lauren Beukes and her broken monsters

    Lauren Beukes is a sensational author, her knowledge of the arts and culture is a force to be reckoned with. Her love of new people, places, conversation and exchange of ideas is what makes her such a rich and colourful person to have on the show. This shines from the pages of her new book BROKEN MONSTERS. It’s been a year since The Shining Girls which catapulted Beukes into wider recognition so how does it feel writing something of such stature after the success of The Shining Girls? Lauren also sheds new light on new cities, old cities and what she loves the most about London, Cape town and her newest city of all, Detroit.
