An award-winning novelist and essayist, Dubravka Ugrešić reflects on femininity, ageing, identity, secrets and love. These are the themes of her new novel, Baba Yaga Laid an Egg, a modern reworking of a traditional myth, translated by Ellen Elias-Bursać, Celia Hawkesworth and Mark Thompson. She will be in conversation with Lisa Appignanesi, currently the President of English PEN, and author of Mad, Bad and Sad: A History of Women and Mind Doctors from 1800 to the Present. Susan Sontag described Ugrešić as 'a writer to follow, a writer to be cherished'; Marina Warner has said that she has 'a unique tone of voice, a madcap wit and a lively sense of the absurd'. Born in former Yugoslavia, she currently lives in Amsterdam. All tickets £8 per event, available online or by calling +44 (0)20 7209 1141.
