London Literature Festival, Lisa Appignanesi © Patrick RedmondIs love the new religion? Or is it, like the old religions, a little bit dead? Is marriage a property deal, an act of public witness or a declaration of undying fidelity? And when fidelity does die, what’s left? At Southbank Centre tonight, Lisa Appignanesi (above), author of the wide-ranging book ‘All About Love’ is joined by Hanif Kureishi, the author of ‘Intimacy’ and candid commentator on amorous angst, to explore this deepest of emotions without any recourse to the usual clichés or self-help psychospeak.
