An Evening with Elizabeth Day

3 September 2021

Join the award-winning, bestselling author, journalist and broadcaster Elizabeth Day to celebrate her exhilarating new novel, Magpie: a thrilling, stylish and psychologically astute story of jealousy, motherhood and power.

Marisa may have only known Jake a few months, but she has never felt this certain about anyone. When he asks her to move in with him and they start trying for a baby, she knows she has finally found the steadfast love and support she has been looking for all her life.

But their relationship is tested when they take in a lodger, Kate, who has little regard for personal boundaries and seems to take an uncomfortable interest in Jake – as well as the baby they are hoping to have.

Why is Kate so obsessed with the couple? And, more worryingly, why doesn’t Jake share Marisa's concern? In her determination to find the answers, Marisa risks losing everything she holds dear…

In conversation with author, journalist and close friend Dolly Alderton for this exclusive launch event, Elizabeth will explore the themes of Magpie: mothers and children, envy and possession, and the dangers of getting everything you’ve ever dreamed of. She’ll also touch on how she came to write this book – how the story came straight from her heart and her guts – and the freeing, thrilling experience of returning to fiction to give voice to some deeply personal experiences. And yes, she might just talk about failure too.

With her trademark thoughtfulness and honesty, this is your chance to spend an evening with the much-loved author and How To Fail podcast host for an insightful and entertaining conversation.
