Each month we invite a debut novelist to read from and talk about their work in an informal setting. Prior knowledge of the text is not essential. Topics of discussion include theme, structure, inspiration and the craft of writing. These sessions are a great way to discover new writing talent and great books. This month, Fiona Mozley discusses her novel Elmet, a compelling portrayal of a family living on the fringes of contemporary society, as well as a gripping exploration of the disturbing actions people are capable of when pushed to their limits.

Fiona Mozley’s debut novel is described as ‘A hugely potent story about aspects of hidden England,’ that ‘builds to a terrifying climax‘ by the judges of the Man Booker Prize 2017, for which Elmet was shortlisted.
