Please note: This event is suitable for over 18s due to the subject matter of the novels.

We welcome two writers whose work tackles the themes of violence, rape and sexual grooming in two brave, hard hitting novels.

Putney by Sofka Zinovieff is described by The Guardian as ‘a Lolita for the age of #MeToo’ in which a woman reappraises her teenage relationship with an older man in an evocative novel about consent and the abuse of power.

Peach is Emma Glass’ extraordinary and powerful debut that looks at the aftermath of a rape, in which she articulates the unspeakable with breath-taking clarity and verve.
