The Confession: Jessie Burton in conversation with Elizabeth Day
Explore the power of secrets and storytelling with Jessie Burton—international bestselling and multi-award-winning author of The Miniaturist—in conversation with acclaimed author, journalist and podcast host Elizabeth Day at the London launch of her dazzling new novel The Confession.
Colliding the peaceful elegance of Hampstead Heath with the radiant glamour of Los Angeles and straddling past and present, The Confession is a luminous story of inter-generational friendships, women searching for themselves, and the weight of secrets. It's 1980 and young Elise follows magnetic author Connie to Los Angeles, where she finds herself drowning in the glare of late-night pool parties and hedonistic success. Thirty years later, the now reclusive Connie is confronted by Rose, a young woman searching for her mother, and demanding a confession. Drawing from her three nuanced female protagonists and their experiences, Burton will examine lies and secrets as the key to our most fascinating personal stories, as well as the crucial role of storytelling in reconstructing our past and building our history.
This event will be followed by a Q&A and a book signing.
