Rachel Cusk on Art, Womanhood and Redefining Fiction

This event is in partnership with Faber Members.

The writing of Rachel Cusk poses us constant challenges. Her critically acclaimed Outline trilogy and memoirs – A Life's Work and Aftermath – dared us to rethink the limits of character, identity and what it means to be a woman. Arguably, no writer working today has pushed the boundaries of contemporary writing and storytelling as far.

On June 10, she comes to Intelligence Squared to discuss her exhilarating new novel Parade. This work promises to once again expand the notion of what fiction can be and do.

Join Cusk alongside writer and literary critic Chris Power and have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A section.

‘Cusk has glimpsed the central truth of modern life.’ Patricia Lockwood

'Rachel Cusk has that ability, unique to the great performers in every art form, to hold one rapt from the moment she appears.' Dwight Garner, New York Times

‘If life were fair, Rachel Cusk would win every prize going.’ Observer
