Isabel Waidner: Matadors, Spaceships and Queer Liberation

Isabel Waidner’s third novel Sterling Karat Gold won the Goldsmiths Prize in 2021. Following a non-binary migrant on a surreal adventure through the streets of London, it offers a satire of the British justice system that reads like a wild update of Kafka’s The Trial. Join Waidner for a unique exploration of how the book’s visions of matadors, spaceships and unicorns illustrate dreams of political empowerment.
