A stunningly beautifully written novel by the author of Fen. This retelling of (at least) two fairy tales/myths is set on the river and tells the story of a daughter abandoned by her mother.
Join us as we celebrate the launch of Dead Girls, the new novel by Abigail Tarttelin.
When her best friend Billie is found murdered, eleven-year-old Thera–fearless and forthright–considers it her duty to find the killer. Aided by a Ouija board, Billie’s ghost, and the spirits of four other dead girls, she’s determined to succeed. The trouble with Thera, though, is that she doesn’t always know when to stop – and sometimes there’s a fine line between doing the right thing and doing something very, very bad indeed. Tense, visceral and thought-provoking, Dead Girls is the new novel from Abigail Tarttelin, the critically acclaimed author of Golden Boy.
Please note that while this event is free to attend, space is limited so please RSVP via Billetto if you'd like to join us.
One of the first from Lena Dunham's new literary imprint, Lenny, this is a fresh, frank and subversive debut. Jenny Zhang tells a series of interconnected stories about the Chinese-American immigrant experience. An endearing, bitter-sweet, funny rendering of girlhood, identity and the particular ad-hoc existence of families forging a new life in a new country.
