A. M. Homes in Conversation with Jeanette Winterson

Thursday 5th July 2018 7:30pm - 9pm Royal Festival Hall Literary Event, Signing, Chargeable Event

Hear the visionary, outrageously funny and bracingly insightful writer discuss her new collection of stories and what it reveals about American life today.

In an exclusive London event, acclaimed author AM Homes reads from and discusses her follow-up to the Women's Prize-winning May We Be Forgiven.

Renowned and celebrated by readers, critics and writers alike, Homes is a much-loved storyteller whose signature humour and psychological accuracy delve beneath the surface of 21st-century America.

In her new book, Days of Awe, the aspirations and anxieties of contemporary American life are laid bare, from a family obsessed with the surfaces of their lives, to the story of a shopper who suddenly finds himself nominated to run for President.

Homes will be joined by Jeanette Winterson, the author of seventeen books, including the national bestseller Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?, seminal coming-of-age tale Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit and The Passion. She has won many prizes including the Whitbread Award for Best First Novel, the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize, the E. M. Forster Award and the Stonewall Award.
