About the Event

Honestly, sometimes I think it’s the only recourse. Killing men in times like these.

Fane presents an exclusive publication event with writer of the moment and author of the internationally bestselling phenomenon Three Women, Lisa Taddeo, to celebrate her debut novel. Animal centres on Joan, the most provocative and mesmerising narrator you will encounter in 2021.   

Meet Joan.

I drove myself out of New York City where a man shot himself in front of me. He was a gluttonous man and when his blood came out it looked like the blood of a pig. That's a cruel thing to think, I know. He did it in a restaurant where I was having dinner with another man, another married man. Do you see how this is going? But I wasn't always that way. I am depraved. I hope you like me.

Joan has spent a lifetime enduring the cruel acts of men. But when one of them commits a shocking act of violence in front of her, she flees New York City in search of Alice, the only person alive who can help her make sense of her past. In the sweltering hills above Los Angeles, Joan unravels the gruesome event she witnessed as a child—that has haunted her every waking moment—while forging the power to finally strike back.

In conversation, Lisa will be talking about her electrifying novel and the inspiration behind it. She’ll also touch on female rage at its blackest and the enduring fallout from a male-dominated society.

Don’t miss this one-off event as Lisa explores one woman’s exhilarating transformation from prey into predator.
