Description

BITCH LIT is a monthly book club devoted to new feminist writing and cult classics by women. Join us for endless wine, cheese and irreverent, fun discussion led by literary critic Lucy Scholes and Gower Street's Elizabeth Morris.

On March 1stwe will be discussing Abandon by controversial Indian writer Sangeeta Bandyopadhyay (translated from the Bengali by Arunava Sinha). This novel tells the story of a woman who runs away from home seeking to free herself from the shackles of society and devote her attentions to writing a novel,only to realise that her five year old son has followed her. Pulsing with raw energy, Abandon gives voice to the perpetual conflict between the demands of life, particularly of motherhood, and those of art.

Numbers strictly limited, please book promptly to avoid disappointment. Tickets are £8/6(students), include wine and cheese. Book online, in store or by phoning 020 7636 1577.
