Jon Ronson's Psychopath Afternoon

This event has passed

In this special matinee show, Jon Ronson recounts the adventure of a lifetime – the funny, terrifying and utterly compelling events that led to his bestselling book The Psychopath Test. 

With very special guests. 

Is it true that psychopaths rule the world? Or have we gone labelling-crazy?

With very special guests Mary Turner Thomson and Eleanor Longden. Neither Mary nor Eleanor appear in Jon’s book, but it wouldn’t exist without them. We’re being oblique because we don’t want to spoil the extraordinary twists and turns in their stories. If you don’t know who they are, don’t Google them. The less you know the better.

Jon Ronson is a journalist and writer of International best-selling books such as Them, The Men Who Stare at Goats, The Psychopath Test and, his latest book, So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed.
