There’s a live event on Monday 8th Feb for Exeter Library with the brilliant Karen Huxtable, library staff and wise books person. Here’s her thoughts on Lullaby Beach and here’s the event, now available on Facebook.

I wrote a blog for the Virago site about the sexual politics for the book and (some of) where it’s come from my own life.
