Three hot early-career writers share tales of young women forging their own bold and unconventional paths in life. Emma Jane Unsworth’s second novel, Animals, follows the filthy, riotous adventures of two best friends in Manchester and has been described by Caitlin Moran as ‘Withnail with girls.’ Anneliese Mackintosh’s first collection of semi-autobiographical short stories, Any Other Mouth, is a frank and funny account of sexual misadventure, bereavement and self-discovery in the vein of Miranda July. Zoe Pilger’s ruthlessly sharp debut novel, Eat My Heart Out, has been described as ‘like a foul-mouthed Nancy Mitford for the Gawker generation.’ The event will also feature live music from singer-songwriter Karima Francis, and will be hosted by Katie Popperwell. Don’t miss this evening of raw, wild and self-revelatory new writing and music.
