About the Event

The Portobello Bookshop will be hosting an event with the inimitable Helen Oyeyemi to celebrate the publication of her latest novel, Peaces. The event will take place online with Helen joining from her home via Crowdcast.

Peaces is the story of Otto and Xavier Shin, a couple who embark on a mysterious train journey that takes them far beyond any destination they could have anticipated. As they roll along, Otto and Xavier discover that each carriage is more curious and fascinating than the last, becoming embroiled in intrigue aboard this strange train. Who is Ava Kapoor, the sole full-time inhabitant of the train, and what is her relationship to a man named Prem? Are they passengers or prisoners? We discover who orchestrated the journey, hurtling them all into their past for clues.

This is a brilliant, wise, strange and, above all, beautiful novel.
