Join us for a truly legendary double author event, as we welcome Victoria Gosling and Sophie Keetch to Mr B’s to discuss their Arthurian-themed new books.
Victoria’s Bliss and Blunder is a breathtakingly fresh, state-of-the-nation retelling for the 21st century, perfect for fans of The Green Knight and Succession. Sophie’s My Name is Morgan is a powerful feminist retelling of the life of Morgan Le Fay, nemesis of the sorcerer Merlin, sure to delight fans of Natalie Haynes and Madeline Miller. We can’t wait to chat to both authors about their love for Arthurian tales, and what inspired them to write their own in such different ways.
About Bliss and Blunder:
Arthur and Gwen married young. Twenty years on, Gwen’s got it all: wealth, beauty, a famous husband who’s the founder of Britain’s most successful tech company, stables full of horses, millions of followers on Instagram, an unstable lover, a wayward son, a hoard of secrets, an aching heart, and a cyberstalking blackmailer who calls himself The Invisible Knight. As the Wiltshire town of Abury prepares to celebrate the fortieth birthday of its favourite son, Morgan, Gwen’s former best friend, is on her way back to Abury after two decades away, keen to expose Abury’s long buried secrets and hellbent on revenge.
About Morgan is My Name:
An atmospheric, feminist retelling of the early life of famed villainess Morgan le Fay, set against the colourful chivalric backdrop of Arthurian legend. When King Uther Pendragon murders her father and tricks her mother into marriage, Morgan refuses to be crushed. Trapped amid the machinations of men in a world of isolated castles and gossiping courts, she discovers secret powers.
Vengeful and brilliant, it’s not long before Morgan becomes a worthy adversary to Merlin, influential sorcerer to the king. But fighting for her freedom, she risks losing everything – her reputation, her loved ones and her life.
