About the event
This month, we're reading Daisy Johnson's multi-layered debut novel, Everything Under.
What do you do when the past resurfaces? When Gretel was sixteen, her mother disappeared, abandoning her to foster care. Having lived a difficult childhood on the canals, thirty-two year old Gretel is now a lexicographer, and has her life settled when a mysterious phone call from her mother threatens to unbalance it. She sets out to search for her mother in order to unravel the mystery of her childhood on the canals of Oxfordshire, and to face the fear of the mysterious creature that lurked in the river.
Read this Booker Prize shortlisted novel from our Digital Library collection and join us to discuss an eerie tale of the Oedipus myth, as we wade into Gretel's past and explore questions of family secrets, fear and free will.
