Riddley Walker, the cult novel by Russell Hoban first published in 1980, explores the topography of a post-apocalyptic landscape. Riddley walks across a futuristic East Kent, mapping a world that has been reduced by nuclear explosion to Iron Age levels of technology. A forager, gatherer of myths and pedestrian sense-maker, Riddley’s psychogeographical wanderings speak to all of us walking now.

To mark the 40th anniversary of publication, join us for a series of events exploring this extraordinary book and the questions it continues to raise.

Sum Poasyum is a day of screenings, talks, panel discussions, creative responses and interventions. Featuring live online talks with Emily Guerry, Dominic Power, Feral Practice, Esi Eshun, Sara Trillo, the Kent Animal Humanities Network and a panel event with the Festival Read Book Club. Find out more about the book through invited reader responses from Riddley fans including Neil Gaiman, Max Porter, Una McCormack and many more. New film and audio artist responses from Feral Practice, Amy Cutler, Esi Eshun and Sonia Overall.
