Ruth Figgest – leading the way at Inspiring Talks


Author Ruth Figgest will be leading lady at October’s Inspiring Talks in Brighton.

Inspiring Talks is a monthly event which runs from The Nightingale Rooms in Brighton. The talks aim to bring people together in order to learn new things, hear from wonderful people and celebrate each other’s experiences.

Ruth will be sharing her novel, Magnetism (Myriad 2018), the rules of relationships and family life. Set in the American mid- and south-west, their story unfolds over more than 50 years against a backdrop of sweeping social change. Feisty and argumentative, they roll with the punches, surviving car crashes, awkward family gatherings, relationship disasters—and plastic surgery.

‘This novel has stayed with me as one of the most relatable and realistic novels I’ve encountered on the subject of difficult mother-daughter relationships.  It’s my kind of writing: stylish and taut, full of life.’ Literary Sofa
