Sarah Moss in conversation with Max Porter
Tuesday 13th July 2021
19:30 at Waterstones, Online Events
‘Sharp, searching, thoroughly imagined, Summerwater is utterly of the moment’ – Hilary Mantel
Join us for what promises to be an unmissable digital event with bestselling author Sarah Moss, as she speaks to Max Porter about her eighth novel, Summerwater, Waterstones Book of the Month for July.
From the acclaimed author of Ghost Wall, Summerwater is a devastating story told over twenty-four hours in the Scottish highlands, and a searing exploration of our capacity for both kinship and cruelty in these divided times. Longlisted for the Orwell Prize for Political Fiction 2021 and a Sunday Times top-ten bestseller, this is an intensely powerful and absorbing novel of subtle menace.
Sarah will be joined by Max Porter, author of Lanny, which was longlisted for the Booker Prize, and Grief Is the Thing with Feathers, winner of the International Dylan Thomas Prize.
