Not Having It All; An evening with Jennie Ensor
Tuesday 11th June 19:00 - 21:00 at London - Crouch End
Join us on the 11th of June for an evening with Jennie Ensor, to celebrate the launch of her brilliant new novel, Not Having it All - a brazen comedy about the perils of midlife.
Neuroscientist Bea Hudson fears she is a bad mother and that her career will be thwarted by family life. When her husband Kurt suspects Bea of having an affair with her best friend Madeleine, a chain of events is triggered, leading to a crisis in Bea’s life.
Can Bea survive the demands of her career and the turmoil in her marriage without having a breakdown? Can Madeleine survive Kurt’s anger and find happiness with Colin, a man she met in a lift? And can love survive marriage, middle-age, alcohol and ambition?
Not Having It All is about a scientist torn between her stalling career and the demands of her family. With themes of trust, deception and obsession, it is a mercilessly playful take on modern friendships, relationships and family life.
The evening will include dramatised readings, a Q & A with the author, a competition to win copies of the book, and book signings along with snacks, wine and cupcakes!
Admission is free, please RSVP to the shop via phone, email or in person to reserve your place.
