The year`s second Literature Live! Evening promises to be as interesting as the first : We are launching legendary English Cricket Captain Mike Brearley`s new book On Form. Those who know their cricket will remember that Brearley motivated the English team to play at its very best, and this may have had something to do with the fact that he was a qualified psychoanalyst. (He has a busy practice even today). Quite aptly,after his retirement he became President of MCC, and later, President of the British Psychoanalytical Society.
In On Form, Brearley examines many of the elements that contribute to being in and out of form, not only in cricket but across many fields like finance, music, medicine and philosophy. Can we consciously regain form? Or do we leave it to the gods? These, and similar questions of relevance to all of us in any walk of life, will be part of his conversation with author and columnist Ayaz Memon.
The book will be launched at NCPA`s Experimental Theatre by former Test Captain Dilip Vengsarkar on Thursday, February 1 at 7 PM.
Do come early: as usual, seating is on a first come, first served basis.
