Maggie Gee

9th Apr 2008 - 7:30pm

The Arts Centre

Maggie Gee is one of the liveliest, most provocative voices in contemporary fiction. Her work is both technically inventive and highly accessible. Dying, in Other Words, her first published novel, is an experimental black comedy in which a supposedly dead woman rewrites the story of her own death, while The Ice People and The Flood are both dystopian fantasies set in the not-so-distant future; and The White Family (shortlisted for both the Orange Prize and the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award) deals with racism in contemporary London.

In addition to her ten novels, she has recently published a short story collection, The Blue, once again blending everyday observations with visionary insight. At tonight’s event she will read from and discuss her latest work.

The evening is hosted by the creative writing programme at Edge Hill. If you would like to know more about our courses, please contact the Enquiries Unit on 0800 195 5063.

Tickets £3.50 all.
