Grace Lavery and Lauren John Joseph in conversation with Jeremy Atherton Lin

Tuesday 22nd March 2022
19:30 at Waterstones, Brighton

We are thrilled to welcome writers, Grace Lavery and Lauren John Joseph to Waterstones Brighton discuss their books, Please Miss: A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Penis and At Certain Points we Touch with Jeremy Atherton Lin. 

Grace Lavery is a reformed druggie, an unreformed omnisexual chaos Muppet, and a 100 per cent, all-natural, synthetic female hormone monster. How could her story be straightforward when she is anything but? The telling of her tale is kaleidoscopic, wild and audacious: Grace performs in a David Lynch remake of Sunset Boulevard and is reprogrammed as a 1960s femmebot; she is targeted with anonymous letters from a mysterious cabal of clowns; she writes a socialist manifesto disguised as a porn parody of QI (or is it vice versa?).

As Grace fumbles toward a new trans identity, she tries on dozens of different voices, creating a coat of many colours. The result is dazzling, unique and unforgettable. Startlingly funny and ruthlessly smart, Please Miss gives us what we came for, then slaps us in the face and orders us to come again.

Lauren John Joseph was born in Liverpool and lives in London, they write for the page, the stage and the screen. Their film and performance work has been shown internationally across the UK, US, Europe and Asia. They are the author of the plays Boy in a Dress and A Generous Lover, and the experimental prose volume Everything Must Go. At Certain Points We Touch is their first novel.
