Join us for an evening with Lottie Hazell, author of Piglet – a searing, unforgettable debut which is set to take readers by storm.
For Piglet – an unshakable childhood nickname – getting married is her opportunity to reinvent. Together, she and Kit are the picture of domestic bliss: effortless hosts, planning a covetable wedding. But if a life looks too good to be true, it probably is.
Days before they are due to be married, Kit reveals an awful truth – one that has the power to strip Piglet of the life she has so carefully built. As the hours count down, Piglet is torn between a growing appetite and the desire to follow the recipe, follow the rules. Surely, with her husband, she could be herself again. Wouldn’t it be a waste for everything to curdle now?
Lottie Hazell is a writer and contemporary literature scholar, whose research considers food writing in twenty-first century fiction. Piglet is her first novel.
She will be joined by Lara Williams, author of Treats, Supper Club and The Odyssey, for a discussion about food, bodies, and unruly appetites.
