A Night In with Robert Webb

29 April 2021

In conversation with Jenny Colgan to mark the paperback publication of Come Again

You can't fall in love for the first time twice...

Join award-winning actor, comedian and best-selling author, Robert Webb, for an insightful and witty evening about love, grief and time travel to celebrate the paperback publication of his Sunday Times bestseller Come Again.

Kate's husband Luke - the man she loved from the moment she met him twenty-eight years ago - died suddenly. Since then, she has pushed away her friends, lost her job and everything is starting to fall apart. One day, she wakes up in the wrong room and in the wrong body. She is eighteen again but remembers everything. This is her college room in 1992. This is the first day of Freshers' Week. And this is the day she first meets Luke…

Following the success of Webb’s part-memoir, part-call-to-arms How Not To Be A Boy in 2017, which was praised for its irreverent look at the state of modern masculinity and established him as an essential literary voice, Webb’s first novel brilliantly walks the line between humour and poignancy so familiar to his fans. Wildly funny, frank and clever, Come Again is a wonderful feat of imagination, guaranteed to delight and move in equal measure.

In conversation with writer Jenny Colgan for this exclusive event, Webb will consider his inspiration for the novel, his writing process, and why he wanted to write exactly the kind of book that he would read. Touching on themes of friendship, love and 90’s nostalgia, this is an evening of guaranteed laughter and wisdom that asks us: what would you do if you had your time again?
