Fiona Mozley, Daisy Johnson & Tom Bullough in conversation with Danny O'Connor
Thursday 2nd November 2017
18:30 - 20:30 at Waterstones, London - Trafalgar Square
We're excited to announce that this year's literary panel event is themed around places and nature and are delighted to welcome three fantastic authors, Fiona Mozley, Daisy Johnson and Tom Bullough, who will be in conversation with Danny O'Connor from Liverpool University.
Join us for an evening on literary writing, on nature and life, and the intriguing connections between rural landscapes and language.
About Fiona Mozley's Elmet:
An unforgettable novel about family, as well as a beautiful meditation on landscape. Atmospheric and unsettling, Elmet is a lyrical commentary on contemporary society and one family's precarious place in it, as well as an exploration of how deep the bond between father and child can go.
This is fresh and distinctive writing from an exciting new voice in fiction - Sally Rooney meets Sarah Perry. A dazzling blend of acute observation of the natural world and of the ordinary, fragile human lives that pass through it.
Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2017
About Daisy Johnson's Fen:
The Fen is a liminal land. Real people live their lives here. They wrestle with sex and desire, with everyday routine. But the wild is always close at hand, ready to erupt. This is a place where animals and people commingle and fuse, where curious metamorphoses take place, where myth and dark magic still linger. So here a teenager may starve herself into the shape of an eel. A house might fall in love with a girl. A woman might give birth to a, well, what?
Shortlisted for The Edge Hill Short Story Prize 2017.
Longlisted for The Sunday Times EFG Short Story Award 2017
About Tom Bullough's Addlands:
Addlands is the story of two generations of the Hamer family working the Funnon Farm and an instantly a classic of rural British fiction. It is as vast and complex as a symphony but as pure and moving as a solo voice in an empty church. As much a book about birdsong as it is about closing time brawls, Addlands' beauty is in the clear truth of its language and the sheer humane depth of its inquiries.
