Sex and Death

Petina Gappah and Peter Hobbs with Alex Clark
12:00pm Tickets £12 (£10 concessions)



Are there any subjects more suited to the short form than sex and death? Literature that explores our beginnings and endings springs eternal, and a new anthology illuminates and excavates these most primal forces.

Co editor and contributor to Sex and Death, Peter Hobbs is the author of two highly acclaimed novels and a collection of stories, I Could Ride All Day in My Cool Blue Train.

Petina Gappah made waves with her debut prize-winning collection An Elegy for Easterly, about which the Observer said ‘Often satirical, occasionally lyrical… a delight.’ Her story ‘The News of Her Death’, shortlisted for the 2016 Sunday Times EFG Short Story Award, is included in Sex and Death. Her new collection Rotten Row, which navigates the barriers of class, race, gender and sexual politics while exploring crime and justice in Zimbabwe, will be launched at Small Wonder.
