Amina Cain in conversation with Amy Key | Thu 24 Aug 19:00 – 20:00 | Daunt Books, Marylebone High Street, London | £10

Amina will be discussing her most recent non-fiction book A Horse at Night. In this stunning book Amina contemplates how to be honest, open and free, as a person and a writer, even (and perhaps especially) during a time of great change. She moves elegantly through a personal canon of authors – including Marguerite Duras, Elena Ferrante and Annie Ernaux – and topics as timely and various as female friendships, neighbourhood coyotes, landscape painting and the politics of excess, to profound and joyous effect.
