Celebrating brilliant up and coming Spanish writer Gabriela Ybarra, whose debut novel, The Dinner Guest has been long-listed for the Man Booker Prize.

Innovative in its style and structure, Gabriella Ybarra’s ‘free re-construction’ of real-life events plays with notions of fiction and non-fiction, public and private.

It connects two life-changing events – the very public death of Ybarra’s grandfather, and the very private and intimate experience of caring for, and subsequently losing her mother to cancer.

Devastating yet luminous, The Dinner Guest marks the arrival of a talented new voice and we are delighted to welcome Gabriella to Liberia to launch her debut.

Join us for drinks, readings and discussion.
