Daisy Johnson in Ely

August 2 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

We are delighted to welcome former Ely resident Daisy Johnson back to her home city, to celebrate her debut novel, ‘Everything Under’.
Gretel works as a lexicographer, updating dictionary entries, which suits her solitary nature. But a phone call from the hospital interrupts her isolation and throws up questions from long ago. She begins to remember the private vocabulary of her childhood. She remembers other things, too: the wild years spent on the river; the strange, lonely boy who came to stay on the boat one winter; and the creature in the water – a canal thief? – swimming upstream, getting ever closer. In the end there will be nothing for Gretel to do but go back.
