Join Sarvat Hasin to celebrate the publication of her debut novel, a loose retelling of the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice.
Aida is a rock star at her peak with a devoted cultish fanbase who follow her every move. When she disappears into a complicated love affair with an ex, they are determined to uncover her truths.
After a decade of silence, Aida and Ehsan reconnect, hoping to recreate the love they shared in their youth. When Ehsan's life unravels, he follows Aida on tour, but it becomes clear that their connection is strained by secrets and jealousies. The past blurs with their present as they follow in the footsteps of mythic lovers before them.
In conversation for this virtual event, Sarvat will explore why she wanted to rewrite this famous myth, exploring the consuming and devastating effects of using a lover as a muse.
‘Blindingly brilliant. Hasin is a force to be reckoned with and I cannot wait to read everything she writes.’ Daisy Johnson, author of Sisters
‘A magical and dark story of lovers and muses, jealousy and secrets, and music, brilliantly told in Hasin’s precise and devastating prose.’ Nikesh Shukla
