Vigdis Hjorth and Shahidha Bari: Is Mother Dead?
20 October 2022
About this Event
Vigdis Hjorth’s latest novel Is Mother Dead (translated by Charlotte Barslund; Verso) is a characteristic blend of thriller, metafiction, meditation on art, motherhood, belonging and surveillance. She cites as influences Brecht and Céline. Others have compared her to Kafka and Thomas Bernhard, but in truth, she is quite unique.
Hjorth will be in conversation with writer and broadcaster, Shahidha Bari.
