Event description

Description

Under the Covers is an illuminating series of talks in which Ella Berthoud, bibliotherapist and co-author of The Novel Cure: An A-Z of Literary Remedies puts an author, artist or person of note onto the couch, and asks them all about the books that made them – what they read as a child and a teenager, what they read now - and all about their lives and what they have just been writing, painting or performing.

We're hugely excited that our next guest is fiction writer, Jane Fraser.

Jane Fraser is an award-winning writer of short stories, historical fiction, memoir and haibun.

She lives and works in Llangennith, a small village at the north-western edge of the Gower peninsula, south Wales, in a house facing the sea which bears the full brunt of the south-westerly wind.

Her writing is infused with the tone of this prevailing wind, so much so, that as a homage, she has titled her first collection of short stories, The South Westerlies. This collection is to be published by the acclaimed independent publisher of literary fiction, Salt, in 2019 – its 20th anniversary.

Jane Fraser’s stories reflect place not as a cosmetic backdrop, but an affecting agent in the lives of her fictional characters and the actions they take. For her stories are the coming together of ‘psyche’ and ‘geography’ and psychogeographic methodology is central to their making as is walking a way into their writing.


Ella will prescribe books to the guest according to their ailments and needs. Audience members are encouraged to join in with recommendations and questions for the guest. Copies of Jane’s book will be available to buy.

Under The Covers is a monthly event running until December 2019.
