EJCC Live – With Hugo Rifkind in conversation with David Ian Neville via Zoom – 7.30pm

July 7

Hugo will be talking about his new novel, RABBITS, which has just been published.

Rabbits is the explosive new novel from Times journalist Hugo Rifkind. Tommo has just
moved to a prestigious boarding school. A product of the middle class, and with new-found
independence thrust upon him, he finds himself invited into fading crumbling country houses.
It’s the early nineties and the elite he is now surrounded by is struggling for relevance.
Alienated from the mainstream, and running low on inherited wealth, his peers have
retreated into snobbery and fatalism. In this world, half remembered traditions mix with
decadence and an awful lot of small dead animals. And sometimes, not just animals.

Hugo Rifkind is a columnist, critic and leader writer for The Times and a presenter
on Times Radio, having formerly been a columnist for the Spectator, GQ and the Herald. He
is a regular panellist on BBC Radio 4’s comedy show The News
Quiz, and an occasional guest on television shows that aren’t supposed to be funny at all.
He was born and raised in Edinburgh, studied in Cambridge, and now lives in North London
in a house where everybody else speaks German, including the dog.
