Josephine Taylor: Eye of a Rook

8 March @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Join Better Read Than Dead on International Womens Day to celebrate Josephine Taylor’s debut novel, Eye of a Rook.

In 1860s London, Arthur sees his wife, Emily, suddenly struck down by a pain for which she can find no words, forced to endure harmful treatments and reliant on him for guidance. Meanwhile, in contemporary Perth, Alice, a writer, and her older husband, Duncan, find their marriage threatened as Alice investigates the history of hysteria, female sexuality and the treatment of the female body – her own and the bodies of those who came before.

Josephine will appear in conversation with Cassandra Atherton.
