What is the shape of a life? Is it the things that happen to us? Or is it the stories we tell about the things that happen to us? From the coast of the Adriatic to the salt spray of Santa Barbara, the narrator of Topics of Conversation maps out her life through two decades of bad relationships, motherhood, crisis and consolation. The novel unfurls through a series of conversations - in private with friends, late at night at parties with acquaintances, with strangers in hotel rooms, in moments of revelation, shame, cynicism, envy and intimacy. Sizzling with enigmatic desire, Miranda Popkey's debut novel is a seductive exploration of life as a woman in the modern world, of the stories we tell ourselves and of the things we reveal only to strangers. 'A pleasingly unsentimental novel about attraction and repulsion and the fluid line between the two. Popkey writes about these emotional eddies with such thrilling detachment you'll wonder why you ever worried about love at all.' Jenny Offill, author of Dept. of Speculation

“A wide range of emotions and experience”

The description of this novel really appealed to me. I love authors that dive into what it is to be a woman - the complexities, dark secrets, desires and loneliness.

“Jump in and enjoy the ride!”

I loved this breathless, drunken, juggernaut of a novel. I've never come across a narrative style quite like it and once you give yourself over to it and stop expecting a point to it or a specific plot line you... More
