Thur Oct 24th: Faces On The Tip Of My Tongue with Joanna Walsh 7pm
Join novelist Joanna Walsh and translators Sophie Lewis and Jennifer Higgins in discussion of Emmanuelle Pagano's award-winning experimental novel FACES ON THE TIP OF MY TONGUE, from the acclaimed author of Trysting. Described by critics as 'polyphonic, arboreal, rhizomatic, desperate, stunning,' this newly translated English edition from indie publisher Pereine Press is a series of interconnected stories linking several characters at different stages of their lives from varying viewpoints. Meetings, partings, loves and losses in rural France are dissected with compassion in this spellbinding web of stories about people living on the periphery. Emmanuelle Pagano has won multiple awards for her writing, including the 2009 EU Prize for literature for her novel Les Adolescents Troglodytes (2007) and her work has been translated into twelve languages. She has been described as a ‘prose poet’ of the highest possible calibre (Christopher Reid), and this latest work to appear in English translation is no exception. Tix £5 to include a glass of wine or cordial. 7pm.
