St. Louis County Library, HEC Media, and Left Bank Books present Fiona Mozley, “Hot Stew.”
Video premiere: Wednesday, June 16, 7:00 p.m. on Facebook.com/STLCoLibrary
In conversation with Ryan Krull, Interviews Editor - Boulevard Magazine
A finalist for the Man Booker Prize for her debut novel “Elmet,” Fiona Mozley’s much-anticipated second novel takes readers to the grimy, vibrant central London district of Soho. Young millionaire Agatha Howard plans on converting one piece of prime real estate into luxury condos--but the tenants have no intention of vacating the premises. As Mozley’s accomplished tragicomedy unfolds, a cast of heroic queers, junkie magicians, Russian oligarchs, radical protestors, and even a glamorous borzoi converge in unexpected ways. Entertaining and sharply funny, “Hot Stew” confronts questions about wealth and inheritance, gender and power, and the things women must do to survive in an unjust world.
