Tessa Hadley & Charlotte Mendelson: The Process of Revealing
In Tessa Hadley’s Free Love, homemaker Phyllis is about to have her neat suburban world blown apart by kissing the son of a friend. In The Exhibitionist, Charlotte Mendelson introduces a family whose patriarch artist prepares for a new exhibition – but his wife, an artist largely ignored, has had enough of playing by the rules. Two lauded writers take on female desire and self-realisation in this event chaired by journalist Alex Peake-Tomkinson.
