Emma Jane Unsworth
Jenny McLaine is an adult. Supposedly. At thirty-five she owns her own house, writes for an achingly cool magazine, and has hilarious friends just a message away. But whilst her social media portrays her life as a bed of roses, it is more of a dying succulent.
Is Jenny ready to grow up and rescue herself this time?
From Emma Jane Unsworth, author of Animals – now a film starring Holliday Grainger and Alia Shawkat – comes a pitch-perfect novel about friendship, family, love, and what it means to be Adults.
Join the award-winning novelist and screenwriter, in conversation with author and podcaster Pandora Sykes, as she explores how it feels to come of age in the twenty-first century. Emma will detail how she was inspired to write this story of now: a misadventure of maturity, a satire on our age of self-promotion, a tender look at the impossibility of womanhood, a love story. Dissecting the unvarnished truth behind the confident and collected image that we sell to others, this a candid and hilarious chat about learning how to fall back in love with life amidst the giddy delirium of the social media age.
Gloriously heartfelt and instantly relatable, this is an evening that will remind you that when the world throws you a curve ball (or nine), it may take friendship, gin & tonics, or even your mother to bring you back…
