Dulwich Books hosts a chat between award-winning author Eimear McBride and Lee Rourke. The event will be chaired by Max Porter and held in Dulwich Books on Wednesday 9th July.
Eimear McBride won the Goldsmith Prize in 2013 for her novel Girl Is A Half Formed Thing a novel written in a stream of consciousness style and tells the story of a young woman’s complex relationship with her family. Philip Godfather of Dulwich bookselling says ‘this is strong stuff, a novel like no other except maybe Joyce’
Lee Rourke received widespread aclaim for his debut novel The Canal including winning Not The Booker Prize from The Guardian in 2010. He will be talking about his new book Vulgar Things.
Max Porter is an editor at Granta and many of our customers may recognise him as the interviewer of Eleanor Catton for her event with us last September. He discovered Eli and contributed to the buzz that lead to her novel receiving rave reviews and then of course it went onto win The Man Booker Prize of 2013.
