Emma Cline and Nicole Flattery talk to Stephanie Merritt

At Sea in New York

Hay Festival 2023, 

Join Emma Cline and Nicola Flattery as they discuss their new novels about young women navigating uncertain worlds, and trying to find their place. Cline’s The Guest is about a woman who chooses to stay on Long Island after her relationship with an older man ends, drifting like a ghost through the gated driveways and sun-blasted dunes of a rarefied world, trailing destruction in her wake. Flattery’s debut Nothing Special is a tale of two young women navigating the world of Andy Warhol’s Factory, and coming of age in 1960s New York.
