Double Book Launch: Radical French Writers

 

 We celebrate the simultaneous release of two new books on alternative communities of radical French writers: Flaubert, Beckett, NDiaye: The Aesthetics, Emotions and Politics of Failure and Poètes français du 21ème siècle: entretiens. Both books emerge from symposia organised by Birkbeck Research in Aesthetics of Kinship and Community. Join the editors and members of the centre, Andrew Asibong, Aude Campmas and Nathalie Wourm, to launch the books.

Naming Monsters

Alison Bechdel
Very impressive…this is scary good.

Bryan Talbot, competition judge
Naming Monsters is a unique book, an obvious labour of love. It’s intimate, poignant, sometimes very moving and often genuinely creepy.

Hannah Berry, competition judge
Naming Monsters seems so inviting, so recognisable; peppered with sublimely rude humour, intertwined with folklore and still able to spring powerful emotional punches.
