About The Event
This is a live, in-person event.
Location: The Small Hall, Morningside United Church, 15 Chamberlain Road, EH10 4DH
Two brilliant award-winning female authors join us to talk about their addictive novels and the themes of love, obsession and murder againsts the backdrop of war.
Emma Flint, the author of Little Deaths (longlisted for numerous awards including the Bailey's Women's Prize for Fiction) joins us to talk about her sensational new novel, Other Women, about a fatal love triangle in interwar London.
Mesmerising, haunting and utterly remarkable, this is a devastating story of fantasy, obsession inspired by a murder that took place almost a hundred years ago. In a lonely cottage on a deserted stretch of shore, an anguished moment between lovers becomes a horrific murder. And two women who should never have met are connected for ever . . .
Emma will be in conversation with fellow author Mary Paulson-Ellis, who will be discussing her wartime novel The Inheritance of Solomon Farthing, which was long-listed for the McIlvanney Prize for best Scottish crime novel and a Historical Writers' Association Gold Crown.
