About

WORD FACTORY PRESENTS: LIONEL SHRIVER - So the short story doesn't sell? Special guest reader: Agnieszka Dale. An evening with one of the most renowned and controversial figures in the short story world. It has long been argued "short stories don't sell" - but Shriver has proved this is not the case. Her first collection Property (published this month) - reflections on possession, ownership and how what we own works within the dynamics of relationships - was bought by Harper Collins for a six-figure sum. This fact, combined with Lionel's continual drive to push the boundaries of fictional form and accepted values, will make this a thought-provoking event in our Change Maker series. Lionel will read from her new work and be in conversation with Word Factory director Cathy Galvin. Don't miss this memorable evening.
