A Night In with
C. Pam Zhang
Join Booker Prize longlisted author of How Much of These Hills is Gold, C. Pam Zhang, in conversation with Sofia Akel to celebrate the publication of her brand-new book Land of Milk and Honey.
A smog has appeared. Food crops are disappearing. A chef escapes her career in London to take a job at a decadent mountaintop colony seemingly free of the world’s troubles. There, her enigmatic employer and his visionary daughter have built a lush new life for the global elite, one that reawakens the chef to the pleasures of taste, touch and her own body.
Pam’s newest novel is sensuous and surprising, joyous and bitingly sharp. In this delectable event, Pam and Sofia will discuss the complex natures of food, sex and the intricacies of desire and longing. Register for this free event to dip into a world of hidden wonders and seductive flavours.
“The way Zhang writes about food and desire and human failings is exquisite – sensually detailed, at times visceral. This is a tremendous novel that explores the way people will break when the world itself is broken. Land of Milk and Honey is truly exceptional.” Roxane Gay
