First Love: Gwendoline Riley and Katherine Angel with Joanna Biggs

Gwendoline Riley was at the bookshop to talk about her new novel, First Love, an exploration of marriage as battleground. Anne Enright described her previous novel, Opposed Positions, as ‘more than up to the job of writing the wasted hinterlands of the human heart’; Stuart Kelly called it ‘a continual joy’. Riley was in conversation with Katherine Angel, author of Unmastered: A Book on Desire, Most Difficult to Tell (Penguin 2012); the discussion was chaired by Joanna Biggs, author of All Day Long (Profile 2015) and editor at the London Review of Books.
