Small Wonder - Let Me Count The Ways, image from event to be held on 27 September 2017

Love – the ultimate subject matter.

Whether thwarted, unrequited, or familial, it’s at the crux of our greatest narratives. Join young novelists currently making waves, listen to state of the art readings and participate in a scintillating discussion about different ways of describing that age-old theme – ‘LOVE’.

Rowan Hisayo Buchanan is a Japanese-British-Chinese-American writer whose debut Harmless Like You has been gathering plaudits; her story in How Much the Heart Can Hold explores ‘la douleur exquise’.

Gwendoline Riley is the author of five taut, commanding novels; her most recent, First Love, was shortlisted for the Baileys Prize.

“Riley writes with a Woolf-ish exactitude.”(The Times).

The session will be chaired by Arifa Akbar, reviewer, critic and Head of Content at the publisher, Unbound.
