An Evening with Rachel Kushner
Thursday 31st May 18:30 at London - Gower Street
Waterstones Gower Street are delighted to present an evening with Rachel Kushner, acclaimed author of Folio Prize Shortlisted novel The Flame Throwers. Join Rachel as she speaks to journalist Max Liu about her new novel The Mars Room. Set in a Women’s Correctional Facility -- and following Romy Hall, a woman at the start of two consecutive life sentences -- The Mars Room is not only a bold and unsentimental panorama of life on the margins of contemporary America, but also an excoriating attack on the prison-industrial complex.
‘A rare combination of admirably sure-footed sentences and a character and plot that made me stay up far too late… A great pleasure to read in all its devastation’ Sarah Moss
‘An addictive novel, laced through with bracing intelligence’ Joshua Ferris
