CHARLESTON FESTIVAL 27 May 2019

INNOCENCE AND EXPERIENCE

Sofka Zinovieff and Tessa Hadley will be appearing with Juliet Nicolson

 

 

Sofka Zinovieff’s novel Putney is a contemporary Lolita. Its subject is sexual obsession, revolving around an abusive relationship, unacknowledged for forty years, between a grown man and a young adolescent.

 

Tessa Hadley’s novel Late in the Day explores the impact of loss on a group of long-standing friends. Old entanglements and grievances are brought to the surface as the past is re-examined.

 

Both books raise questions about the shifting sands of morality as buried secrets are exhumed in a different era.

 

Chaired by Juliet Nicolson, author of A House Full of Daughters.

 

MONDAY 27 MAY 5:30PM
