Description

Mary Gaitskill is one of the most consistently interesting, provocative, and exhilarating writers working today. She is unafraid to delve into difficult, daring subjects, and encourage us to think more expansively about our lives and preoccupations. Oppositions is a masterly collection of essays, filled with fresh insights and glittering intelligence. The topics range from the work of Nabokov, to horse-racing, to Talking Heads – the result of a roving and brilliant mind.

We are so excited to welcome Mary Gaitskill here to talk about this collection, with the fantastic Octavia Bright. Octavia Bright is an author, broadcaster and co-host of the Literary Friction podcast. Her non-fiction debut This Ragged Grace is due out next year.

Tickets are £10 and include a glass of wine or soft drink.
