Welcome April 16, 2008 Speaker Sylvia Brownrigg!

Sylvia Brownrigg is the author of five acclaimed works of fiction. Her newest novel, Morality Tale, will be published in May 2008 by Counterpoint Press in the US and by Picador in the UK.

Sylvia’s recent novel, The Delivery Room, received widespread praise in the British press. The London Observer called The Delivery Room “one of the most outstanding and properly adult novels of recent years… For once, the word ‘unforgettable’ is justified.” Counterpoint will publish The Delivery Room in the US in Winter 2009.

Learn more about Sylvia’s other novels, including Pages for You and The Metaphysical Touch, and her book of stories, Ten Women Who Shook the World. You can also read some of her reviews and essays, and learn more about a writer the critic James Wood has called “obviously one of the most exciting new writers of her generation” at
