Mieko Kawakami: Women’s Lives in Japan
- Tue 16 Aug 12:15 - 13:15
- Northside Theatre
Attend in person
Mieko Kawakami’s award-winning early novel, Breasts and Eggs, divided opinions: the conservative governor of Tokyo called it ‘unpleasant and intolerable’, while Irish novelist Naoise Dolan holds ‘Mieko Kawakami is a genius’. In today’s conversation about her latest book (translated by Sam Bett and David Boyd) All the Lovers in the Night, she tests the maxim that if women told the truth about their lives the world would split open. Chaired by Mairi Oliver.
Mieko Kawakami is appearing remotely.
