Anyone in need of a good laugh should book in to hear Nina Stibbe in conversation with Cathy Rentzenbrink at Lutyens & Rubenstein this March. As funny in real life as she is in her writing, Nina will be talking about her new novel, Reasons to Be Cheerful, the story of a young woman’s journey to adulthood:
Lizzie Vogel leaves her alcoholic, novel-writing mother and heads for Leicester to work for a racist, barely competent dentist obsessed with joining the freemasons. Soon Lizzie is heading reluctantly, if at top speed, into the murky depths of adult life: where her driving instructor becomes her best friend; her first boyfriend prefers birdwatching to sex and where independence for a teenage girl might just be another word for loneliness.
Tickets are £10 or £20 with a book included. Book ahead.
