Novel Nights with Anna Freeman October 9th

October 9th 2014 at the Lansdown, Clifton Bristol 8pm. Anna Freeman reads from her debut novel, The Fair Fight which won the Tibor Jones Pageturner Prize 2013.  ‘Hugely exciting, I loved it.’ Sarah Waters.

 The Fair Fight is a raucous and intoxicating tale of courage, revenge and female boxing.   Bristol, 1799. In a warren of streets nestled in the filth of the bustling city is a brothel called The Convent. Within this gaudy, bawdy space is born Ruth, wholly plain and fairly unremarkable and by no stretch suitable for the life of prostitution
