Manchester’s brightest new literary star and Liverpool University graduate, Emma Jane Unsworth, will be reading from her novel, Hungry, the Stars and Everything on 1st July at Waterstones, Liverpool One. The event is not ticketed – just pop in to hear a reading from the author followed by a signing session.
Speaking about her debut novel, Emma says,
“It’s about a young woman who is about to turn 30, and in her 29th year things start happening that make her question where she is in life, and whether she has made the right decisions and whether she is truly happy. Food and astronomy are major passions of mine and they certainly were when I was writing the book. I found metaphors within those subjects that related to what my characters were going through.”
Emma’s short fiction has been published by Prospect Magazine, Comma, Nightjar Press, Redbeck Press and Channel 4 books, but Hungry, the Stars and Everything is her first novel. To find out more about Emma’s life, work, and upcoming events, just visit her blog.
