About the Event
Colliding the peaceful elegance of Hampstead Heath with the radiant glamour of Los Angeles and straddling past and present, Jessie's latest novel The Confession is a luminous story of inter-generational friendships, women searching for themselves, and the weight of secrets.
It's 1980 and young Elise follows magnetic author Connie to Los Angeles, where she finds herself drowning in the glare of late-night pool parties and hedonistic success. 30 years later, the now reclusive Connie is confronted by Rose, a young woman searching for her mother, and demanding a confession.
Drawing from her three nuanced female protagonists and their experiences, Jessie will examine lies and secrets as the key to our most fascinating personal stories, as well as the crucial role of storytelling in reconstructing our past and building our history.
This event will be followed by a Q&A and a book signing.
