About the Book

Join ShortList and Faber & Faber for an evening with Leo Benedictus, author of the acclaimed new novel Consent.

Consent puts us inside the mind of a stalker. It’s told through the lives of the women he studies, and his most recent subject, the unsuspecting Frances. It's a thought-provoking and disturbing page-turner and its deadpan black comedy has invited comparisons with Bret Easton Ellis and Martin Amis.

Stephen Mangan has called it 'a great read and the product of a highly entertaining and disturbingly dark mind.'

Leo will do a live Q&A with the writer and journalist Sam Leith which will be followed by questions from the audience.

 

'Consent is thought-provoking as well as shocking, with a teasing parallel between stalking and the business of fiction writing itself. It’s a high-wire act, for sure but one that doesn’t trivialise the issue at the novel’s obsidian heart.’ Anthony Cummings, Metro ****

'An unusual and enormously compelling novel.’ Alex Preston, Observer

 
 

Tuesday 17 April, doors 6.30pm for a 7pm start

Venue: The Yorkshire Grey (upstairs room), 2 Theobalds Rd, London WC1X 8PN

Ticket price: £10 (includes a copy of the book and a beer)
