Join us for an evening in conversation with top notch contemporary fiction writer, Sheena Patel.
The narrator of Sheena Patel’s standout debut novel, I’m A Fan, uses their experience of a seemingly unequal, unfaithful relationship as a prism through which to examine the complicated hold we each have on one another. With a clear and unforgiving eye, the narrator unpicks the behaviour of all involved, herself included, and makes startling connections between the power struggles at the heart of human relationships and those of the wider world, in turn offering a devastating critique of access, social media, patriarchal heteronormative relationships, and our cultural obsession with status and how that status is conveyed.
Sheena is a writer and director for film & TV, and was born and raised in North West London. She is part of the poetry collective 4 BROWN GIRLS WHO WRITE who perform and talk across the UK and internationally, including the British Library, Tate, the Muscat Literature Festival, and as a support act for Sleaford Mods. Their work has been featured on Poetry Unbound and British Vogue.
