About the Event
Publisher Sharmaine Lovegrove talks to Niven Govinden (The Brutal House) and Saskia Vogel (Permission) about their new novels publishing this year with Lovegrove’s imprint at Little, Brown set up to illuminate voices often excluded from the mainstream. Award winning Govinden has been called ‘a true force of fierceness and beauty’ by author and journalist Olivia Laing and writer and translator Vogel’s Permission is a raw, fresh, honest and haunting literary debut. These authors’ novels will be on bedside tables everywhere and are truly ones to watch for 2019.
