Walter MacFarlane Stage


Critically acclaimed author and local resident Elizabeth Fremantle and Imogen Hermes Gowar, recently hailed by The Sunday Times as a ‘soon-to-be literary star’, discuss the depiction of desire in historical fiction. Imogen’s recently published debut novel The Mermaid & Mrs Hancock is a spell-binding story of curiosity and obsession, recently nominated for the Women’s Prize for Fiction 2018, whilst Elizabeth’s new novel The Poison Bed is based on one of the most shocking crimes in history and is an explosive mixture of sex, murder, treachery and witchcraft. They discuss the creation and depiction of desire in their work with international literary scout Catherine Eccles.
