Literary Event, Tue 20 Nov 2018


Riverside Room


Whittaker Ave, Richmond,


Who hasn’t heard of ‘God is dead’ or ‘That which does not kill us makes us stronger’? Friedrich Nietzsche’s work forms the bedrock of our contemporary thought, and yet a shroud of misunderstanding surrounds the philosopher behind these proclamations.

The time is right for a new take on Nietzsche’s extraordinary life, whose importance as a thinker rivals that of Freud or Marx. From his classical education to seemingly familiar ideas I Am Dynamite! contains an unrivalled insight into Nietzsche and charges of antisemitism, his relationship with Wagner, his familial relationships, mental illness, women and – above all – his position in the grand tiers of 20th century thought and ideas.
In this vividly compelling, myth-shattering biography, winner of the James Tait Black memorial prize Sue Prideaux, brings readers into the world of this brilliant, eccentric, and deeply troubled man, illuminating the events and people that shaped his life and work.
