About The Event
Writer Miranda Seymour will be talking to the presenter of the popular ‘Backlisted’ podcast, Andy Miller, about her latest book I Used To Live Here Once - The Haunted Life of Jean Rhys.
According to The Guardian’s Rachel Cooke, Rhys emerges from this stunning new biography as “a difficult outsider whose twin passions were feckless men and drink… I Used to Live Here Once – the biography takes its brilliantly apt title from one of Rhys’s ghost stories – is shot through with madness. Half its cast are half crazy, and most of the rest are as creepy as hell. Liars and fraudsters, bigamists and bolters, grifters and gropers: they’re all here”.
