In this episode, Andrew Biswell explores Anthony Burgess’s adventures in America with the help of Christopher W. Thurley.
Burgess first visited America in 1966, when he was 49, but over the course of his career he gained extensive experience of both living and working in the United States. These experiences influenced some of his most important work, including Earthly Powers, and he analysed American culture extensively in his journalism and non-fiction.
Christopher W Thurley is an English faculty member at Gaston College in Dallas, North Carolina. He earned his doctorate, which focussed on the life and work of Anthony Burgess, from Manchester Metropolitan University. His monograph, Anthony Burgess and America, is forthcoming from Manchester University Press.
