A series of fleeting images and memories ... united by the high intelligence and beauty of Hardwick's prose'—Sally Rooney
Forgotten Fiction is a monthly book club where we travel back in time to rediscover 'lost' literary gems of the 20th Century. Hosted by me, each session is curated around a specific theme and features carefully chosen books to provide the basis for our discussion, which is always light-hearted, informal and fun.
July's club, themed 'Life Writing', will discuss Elizabeth Hardwick's Sleepless Nights, a unique collage of fiction and memoir, letters and essays, portraits and dreams. Originally published in 1979, this handsome new Faber edition comes with an introduction from the brilliant author of the Women’s Prize-winning novel, A Girl Is a Half-Formed Thing, Eimear McBride
