Monday 14th May, 8pm.
Fresh out in paperback (19th April 2018), from Booker-shortlisted author Michèle Roberts, comes a sensuous, evocative novel exploring the lives of women in Victorian London. The Walworth Beauty is a haunting tale of desire and exploitation, isolation and loss, and the faltering search for human connection.
“Michèle Roberts is one of those writers descended perhaps as much from Monet and Debussy as Virginia Woolf or Keats … To read a book by her is to savour colour, sound, taste, texture and touch as never before” (The Times).
Entry is £2.50, includes a glass of wine.
