Ordinary People, the insightful and humorous novel by Orange Prize-winning novelist Diana Evans, is a razor-sharp analysis of modern life in the metropolis. The story subtlely weaves issues of marriage and sexual infidelity, parenthood, cultural identity and belonging, racial identity and politics, described by The Guardian as 'a forensic psychological portrayal of the disenchantment and estrangement of long-term relationships'. Her first novel, 26A, won the Orange Award for New Writers, the Betty Trask Award and the deciBel Writer of the Year award. She lives in London.
Diana will be in conversation with Claire Fuller (Bitter Orange), chaired by author and journalist Nicolette Jones.
This event is on Friday 22 February in The Assembly Rooms, 7–8.15pm. Tickets £10.
