Truly Like Lightning: David Duchovny

No longer available

Kiri Te Kanawa Theatre, Aotea Centre


Of David Duchovny’s latest novel, Truly Like Lightning, the Washington Post said, “We could use more David Duchovny novels: funny, big picture, irreverent.” An epic adventure that asks how we make sense of right and wrong in a world of extremes – with a former Hollywood stuntman and a converted Mormon as lead characters – the book follows hot on the heels of three equally acclaimed works of fiction: Holy Cow: A Modern-Day Dairy Tale, Bucky F*cking Dent and Miss Subways. As novelist, songwriter and Golden Globe-winning actor, Duchovny is a man of prodigious talent – well-known as the star of television series The X-Files and Californication. In an irreverent, Speedo-clad cameo in one of Netflix’s breakout successes of 2021, The Chair, he appeared as the author of an expansive, if dated, thesis on Beckett; in real life he goes one better with a literature degree from Princeton and an MA from Yale. He takes time out from his shooting schedule to discuss his writing life with Sonya Wilson.
