Selfies book launch: Monday 17th June.
Life imitates art! Inspired by self-portraits of women artists and characterised by Sylvie Weil’s self-deprecating humour, the episodes in this collection of literary selfies take us from Tokyo to Tel Aviv, from a 1950s Parisian school playground to Sunday lunches in leafy Vermont. There is laughter but also sorrow, love, loss and betrayal.
‘A beguiling series of vignettes, by turns wry, amusing and disturbing, inspired by self-portraits by women artists and reflecting on the images they provoke. An illuminating survey of the author’s various identities, in a fractured world, as mother, lover and writer.’ – Michèle Roberts
On June 17th, Sylvie Weil and her translator Ros Schwartz will be in conversation with Amanda Hopkinson, for an uncensored evening spilling stories, followed by a glass of wine (to be enjoyed unspilled).
Join us to celebrate the publication of this scintillating, multifaceted memoir, which can be purchased and signed by the author on the day.
Tickets can be purchased here.
