Event description

Description

It sounds like a story straight from a Hollywood movie – a part-time bookseller catapulted from anonymity to literary stardom. Fiona Mozley secretly wrote her forceful first novel, Elmet, on her phone while commuting. She became the second youngest author to be shortlisted for the prestigious Man Booker Prize, cementing the York author’s position as the buzziest novelist of 2017.

Elmet charts how John, a man-mountain who used to make his money as a bare-knuckle boxer and muscle for hire, retreats from his hostile world to a copse in Yorkshire’s West Riding. The novel is deeply rooted in the literature and legend of the Yorkshire landscape. Fiona promises a page-turning conversation with Arts journalist, Yvette Huddleston.
