Join Natasha Brown as we discuss her arresting debut novel, Assembly, a taut, elegant and unflinching study of race and privilege in modern Britain. Assembly is the unconventional story of one woman on her way to a garden party. Described as ‘a modern Mrs. Dalloway,’ it’s a novel that questions the function of narratives and the limits of language.
