Ella Frears: Goodlord

20 Jun 2024 6.30-8.30pm

Tate St Ives
St Ives TR26 1TG

Overview

Join Ella Frears to celebrate the release of her highly anticipated new publication Goodlord

Taking the form of one long email addressed to an estate agent, Goodlord is a fictional memoir of habitation, a genre-defying novelistic text that beautifully evokes the people and places of our lives—the spaces of work, those that may or may not be ‘home’, sites of trauma and ecstasy. Showing all the control of voice one would expect from a poet of her rare skill, Ella Frears has created a book that is as funny as it is harrowing, and beautifully skewers the contemporary housing crisis while questioning the fundamental desires, drivers and disappointments that lie at the heart of our obsession with ‘property’.
'All the hot women I know have Ella Frears on their bedside tables.'
- Sheena Patel

Ella will be in conversation with her editor Will Burns, who will also be introducing his latest offering Natural Burial Ground.

During the event the restaurant bar will be open for refreshments.
