Can Literature Liberate?
It was a real pleasure to attend the first Bare Lit Festival in London – great idea, great audiences, panelists, organisers. In this panel there’s Sareeta Domingo (who writes erotic fiction, amongst other things), poet and academic Joan Anin-Addo, and the accomplished novelist Leila Aboulela. And me. (I reviewed one of Leila’s excellent novels here, and I’m looking forward to reviewing another.)
