I was so happy to be back in Paris last week – I fell in love with the city all over again!

I was there to present my book Little Houses, Big Forests (desire is no light thing) for the first time in France. I was invited by the Transgressive Cultures Conference, held at the University of Chicago, to read several extracts from the book – Just tumult everywhere endlessly, Leda in Glass and several vignettes from my novel.

We also showed our film In the Dark, Dark Room for the first time in France. 

The event was organised by Jack Sargeant and featured so many inspiring academics, thinkers, writers and artists, each highlighting the ever-growing importance of transgressive thinking and creativity in an increasingly conservative world.

Thank you, Jack for the invitation and we hope to join another event in the future.
