Jonathan Kemp reading at Have a Word for Brighton Pride

Jonathan Kemp

Myriad author Jonathan Kemp will be reading at a special edition of Brighton’s much-loved literary salon, Have A Word, at the 25th Anniversary of Brighton Pride, on Saturday 1 August.

As part of the Brighton Pride programme, Jonathan Kemp will read from his new novel, Ghosting, in which he draws on a brilliant literary tradition of madness, incarceration and escape, delivering a Mrs Dalloway for the modern age – and the triumphant coming-of-age of a woman in her sixties.

Jonathan’s debut novel, London Triptych (2010), was shortlisted for the inaugural Green Carnation Prize and won the Authors’ Club Best First Novel Award. His highly acclaimed collection of short stories, Twentysix (2011), is a milestone of literary erotica in the tradition of Georges Bataille and Jean Genet.

This special edition of Brighton’s popular literary salon, Have A Word, will take place at the Literature Tent as part of the 25th Brighton Pride celebrations. Other performers are Nicolas Collins, Allie Rodgers and this year’s Pride Ambassador Alice Denny.
