Event description
Join 5x15 for a very special evening with bestselling author and chart-topping podcaster Elizabeth Day, in conversation with Emma Gannon.

About this event

Bestselling author, journalist, broadcaster and chart-topping podcaster Elizabeth Day joins 5x15 to discuss her thrilling new novel, Magpie, with Emma Gannon, author and host of the award-winning creative careers podcast Ctrl Alt Delete.In Magpie, an exhilarating and suspenseful tale of jealousy, motherhood and power, we’re introduced to Marisa and her new lodger, Kate. But something about Kate isn’t right. Is it the way she looks at Marisa’s boyfriend? Sits too close on the sofa? Constantly asks about the baby they are trying for? Or is it all just in Marisa’s head?

Magpie has been heralded as ‘sinister and comforting, outrageous but grounded’ by Lisa Taddeo, and ‘magnificent’ by Kate Mosse. It’s a psychologically acute exploration of infertility and mental illness, with a stunning twist that will take your breath away. Join Elizabeth as she discusses Magpie, the experiences that inspired it, her life and her work in conversation with Emma Gannon.

Elizabeth Day is the author of four novels and Sunday Times bestselling memoir, How to Fail. Her acclaimed debut Scissors, Paper, Stone won a Betty Trask Award and Home Fires was an Observer book of the year.

She is an award-winning journalist and presents BBC Radio 4's Open Book and the Sky Arts Book Club. She is also the creator and host of the iTunes chart-topping podcast, How To Fail.
