We are proud to launch Gale's new novel Dangerous Pleasures with this reading. Armistead Maupin hailed Gale's Facts of Life as "a monumental feat of imagination, achingly true and beautiful". Suzannah Dunn "writes in a loaded and knowing prose, a hip Edna O'Brien, or Murial Spark in a gymslip" - Glasgow Herald. She will read from her new novel Venus Flaring. The Canadian star Barbara Gowdy will read from Mr. Sandman - Margaret Atwood's choice as Book of the Year in the TLS.
