An evening with Madeleine Gray

February 2 @ 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

£12.00 – £20.00

Join us for an evening with Madeleine Gray discussing her new highly anticipated book Green Dot!

The event will take place in the Book-ish loft on Feb. 2nd at 7:30pm.

All tickets will include a drink upon arrival.


“Funny. Dark. I want to give Green Dot all the adjectives but will content myself with saying it is one of the best books you will read all year” Elizabeth Day.

An incredibly funny book about a woman having an affair that’s a really bad idea. Every sentence sparkles’ Caitlin Moran’Witty as Fleabag, psychologically insightful as Sally Rooney – everyone will be talking about Green Dot’ Lucie Whitehouse Hera is in her mid-twenties, which seems young to everyone except people in their mid-twenties. Since leaving school, she has been trying to kick and scream into existence a life she cares about, but with little success so far.

Until she meets Arthur. He works with her, he is older than her, he is also married. But in her soulless office – the large cold room she feels destined to spend her life in – he is a source of much-needed sustenance.

And though Hera has previously dated women, she soon falls headlong into a workplace romance that will quickly consume her life. Laugh-out-loud funny, deeply moving and whip smart, Green Dot is a story about the terrible allure of wanting something that promises nothing and the winding, torturous, often hilarious journey we take in deciding who we are and who we want to be. ‘Madeleine Gray takes a scalpel to millennial malaise, office romance, and infidelity, and the result is a brainy, gutsy, nervy – and hilarious – wonder of a novel’ Meg Howrey’I am obsessed with this book.

I am obsessed with Hera, with her dad, her friends, her dog. I am obsessed with how funny she is, and how hopeful and dark and tender and bleak the world is through her eyes. Green Dot is a book about love, and how stupid and funny and absolutely beautiful life can be’ Laura McPhee-Browne
