Thu, 15 October 8:00pm - 9:00pm

Neuroscientist, artist and writer Rachel Genn’s second novel is a sharp, witty tale about sex, drugs, rock & roll and The Sopranos.  Believing fame is the only thing worth having a failing psychiatrist claws his way into the limelight by transforming his singer girlfriend into a drug experiment. What emerges is a two-sided toxic relationship in a story that takes an exuberant look at female resilience in the face of social control.

Tara Tobler is the principal editor at Sheffield publishers And Other Stories as well as a writer and reviewer.

Spectacular, dizzying, utterly addictive. Genn’s novel completely claimed me Helen Mort
