Sarah Hall: Art, Sex and Disaster

How can art survive in a world that seems increasingly meaningless – where mass deaths and the fragmentation of society threaten everything we hold dear? This question is at the heart of this event and of Burntcoat, the searing lockdown novel from acclaimed author Sarah Hall. Hall invites us into a world much like our own, in which sculptor Edith and her lover Halit cling to art and each other amidst the breakdown of everything they know. Today's conversation is chaired by poet and novelist Helen Mort.
