Venue: Via YouTube - details to be sent on booking

Sarah Moss will be reading from, and in conversation about, her eighth novel The Fell (Picador, 2021), a sharply observed, darkly funny and unbearably suspenseful novel, asking probing questions about the place the world has become since March 2020, and the place it was before. A novel about compassion and kindness and what we must do to survive.

‘A tense page turner that captures the weird melancholia of locked-down life but also the precious warmth of human connection. I gulped The Fell down in one sitting.’ Emma Donoghue

‘One of our very best contemporary novelists.’ Independent

‘Moss is the most brilliant writer. She deserves to win all the prizes.’ Joanna Trollope

Her previous books include the novels Cold Earth, Night Waking, Bodies of Light, and Signs for Lost Children, and the memoir Names for the Sea: Strangers in Iceland.
