419: One on One
with Will Ferguson

Hosted by Alan Neal
"This book shimmers. Tautly paced and vividly drawn, 419 captures the reader in a net of desire and deceit drawn tight by the interconnections of humanity in the twenty-first century.

We are thrilled to welcome Will Ferguson back to the capital to celebrate his Giller Prize winning novel 419 ! Epic in its sweep and intimate in its portrayal of human endurance,  419: A Novel is literary thriller that spans continents and tells the story of a woman's quest to track down the man she feels is responsible for her father's death.


A car tumbles through darkness down a snowy ravine. A woman without a name walks out of a dust storm in sub-Saharan Africa. And in the seething heat of Lagos City, a criminal cartel scours the Internet, looking for victims.  Lives intersect. Worlds collide. And it all begins with a single email: “Dear Sir, I am the daughter of a Nigerian diplomat, and I need your help…”  Will Ferguson takes readers deep into the labyrinth of lies that is 419, the world’s most insidious Internet scam.
