Erica Mou & Annabel Lyon in conversation with Ann Morgan

Join Annabel Lyon and Erica Mou in one of the most exciting book talks of the year. Hosted by writer and TED speaker Ann Morgan, Annabel and Erica will discuss their books Consent (2020) and Thirsty Sea (2022), exploring complex relationships between sisters.

ANNABEL LYON's magnificent novel CONSENT was longlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction 2021. CONSENT is a deep psychological story about the many shapes relationships between sisters can take. In turn razor-sharp, provocative and precise, CONSENT is a blistering novel of sisters and their knotty relationships, of predatory men and sexual power, of retribution and the thrilling possibilities of revenge.

ERICA MOU's outstanding debut novel THIRSTY SEA (2022) is a thorough exploration of family relationships shadowed by guilt and dissatisfaction. Through frenetic writing, the reader is immersed in Maria's psyche for24 hours, on the anniversary of her sister's death. Muddled, unlikeable, inscrutable, the character of Maria embodies the messier, more morally ambiguous facets of womanhood.

ANN MORGAN is a TED speaker and author of READING THE WORLD (2015) and BESIDE MYSELF (2016), where she also delves into complex relationships between siblings. Ann will host the Q&A on this wonderful occasion.
