An evening with Professor David Wilson & Marcel Theroux discussing murderers who were inspired by novels!

Why do some novels inspire people to commit murder? Which fictional characters and plots arouse lethal violence in the real world? How does fiction become crime fact?

Novelist and presenter Marcel Theroux and one of the country’s leading criminologists Professor David Wilson combine their professional backgrounds to discuss books that have motivated murder and how fiction can sometimes become fact.
