Rebecca Watson talks to Thea Lenarduzzi

10@10: New writers – little scratch

Hay Festival 2021, 

Rebecca Watson's book traces a day in the life of an unnamed woman, living in a world of demarcated fridge shelves and office politics, clock-watching and WhatsApp communication. Underneath this monotony, at every minute along the way, ideas about sex, violence, survival and comedy intertwine. Fearless and playful, the book explores how our minds function in – and survive – the darkest moments.

Thea Lenarduzzi is a commissioning editor at the Times Literary Supplement.
