Event description

Description

Comedian and writer, Jenny Eclair, makes a welcome return to the festival to discuss her latest book, Listening In, with BBC Radio Manchester presenter, Becky Want.

In this addictive short story collection, an offshoot from her BBC Radio 4 series Little Lifetimes, twenty-four very different women reach a pivotal moment in their lives. A widow is liberated by a new job, but keeps it secret from her family. A date in suburbia has dramatic results. A seamstress takes revenge on an unsuspecting customer; while in France, a mother is promised 'fantastic news' - and lets her imagination run away with her.

With each story, Jenny introduces a fascinating new character. And behind each woman lies a gripping tale - of betrayal, of love, of hope and defiance.
