Kit de Waal In conversation with Désirée Reynolds

Artwork Slide

Sat, 31 October 6:00pm

Award winning author Kit de Waal’s work includes the bestselling debut My Name is Leon and an anthology of working class memoir, Common People, which she crowdfunded and edited. Her new book of short stories Supporting Cast is an exquisite study of humanity – vivid tales of thwarted desire, love and loss. With power, precision, humanity and insight this beautiful collection captures the extraordinary moments in our ordinary lives, and the darkness and joy of the everyday.

It’s so good. Full of Kit’s trademark humanity. I can feel my heart grow with every word – Cathy  Rentzenbrink
