“It’s a book that says fuck you to keeping up appearances and ticking the boxes that supposedly make us ‘lucky’ in life.
It’s a celebration of choice and individuality, with the characters realising that—despite all their flaws and failings—they’re actually so lucky to have the lot they’ve been given.”
Hear from the wonderful and hilarious Dawn O’Porter as she sits down with acclaimed author and podcast host Emma Gannon (Ctrl Alt Delete; The Multi-Hyphen Method) to discuss her brand new novel So Lucky.
Bestselling author and broadcaster O’Porter will open up on her witty, incisive and empathetic look into the lives of three women, each of whom is trying to find their way in the world and each, in different ways, struggling with the disconnect between reality and appearances. Instagram perfection, fake news, what your life seems to be and what it really is—O’Porter’s characteristic take on the pitfalls of modern life is already racking up the kind of reader love as her last novel, The Cows.
Emma Gannon is a Sunday Times bestselling author, speaker and podcast host of the no.1 careers podcast in the UK Ctrl Alt Delete. Most recently Emma was announced as Management Today’s 35 Women Under 35 and Telegraph’s ‘Multi-Hyphen Millennials’.
The event will be followed by a Q&A and a book signing.
