Event description

Description

“We get along by a symbiotic adjustment of habits and with a minimum of that pale-mauve hostility you often find among women.”

Forgotten Fiction is a monthly book club where we travel back in time to rediscover 'lost' literary gems of the 20th Century. Hosted by Alex Peake-Tomkinson, each session is curated around a specific theme and features carefully chosen books to provide the basis for our discussion, which is always light-hearted, informal and fun.

As part of The Summer of Testaments, our summer season celebrating Margaret Atwood's forthcoming The Testaments, we will discuss The Edible Woman, the 1969 novel that helped to establish her as a prose writer of major significance. It is the story of a young woman whose sane, structured, consumer-oriented world starts to slip out of focus. Following her engagement, Marian feels her body and her self are becoming separated.

Numbers strictly limited, please book promptly to avoid disappointment. Tickets are £8/£6 (students) and include a gin cocktail


This event is part of The Summer of Testaments, Waterstones Gower Street’s season celebrating Margaret Atwood’s forthcoming novel The Testaments. We’ll tackle themes such as social justice, masculinity, reproductive rights and activism, host an exhibition of The Handmaid’s Tale graphic novel, and discuss Atwood’s earlier novels in our book clubs.
