Join comedian, actress and writer, Isy Suttie, as she celebrates her darkly funny, warm and compelling debut novel.
Jane is trying.
She's been trying for a baby, with increasing desperation as her thirties sail by.
Now, she's trying to make a new start back home with her overprotective, charades-obsessed parents - having left her career and cheating fiancé behind in London.
All whilst trying to convince herself she didn't leave the front door unlocked, or the gas on. (Jane's not anxious. Not really. Not like in an OCD way. Maybe.) With a flimsy job, unlikely friends, and a growing list of worries, can Jane conquer her demons and step forward on her own?
In conversation for this exclusive event, Isy will explore the anxieties of modern life and our desperate desire for everything to go perfectly. She’ll also touch on the joy and horror of romance, sex, family life and small towns, as well as the process of growing up and getting things wrong.
Warm-hearted and witty, don’t miss this laugh-out-loud funny, yet thought-provoking evening.
‘Jane is Trying is laugh out loud funny, beautiful and brave. It manages to be true to life and yet so full of funny and outrageous drama, too. This is the kind of book that you wish would never end. I loved it!’ Josie Long
‘Sharp, tender, darkly funny and so well observed’ Daisy Buchanan
‘Gripping, laugh out loud and heart-warming. Suttie has created a charming world of oddballs (and their even odder parents) I miss them all already!’ Sara Pascoe
