Malibu: August, 1983. It's the day of Nina Riva's annual end-of-summer party, and anticipation is at a fever pitch. Everyone wants to be around the famous Rivas: Nina, the talented surfer and supermodel; brothers Jay and Hud, one a championship surfer, the other a renowned photographer; and their adored baby sister, Kit. Together, the siblings are a source of fascination in Malibu and the world over – especially as the offspring of the legendary singer, Mick Riva.
By midnight the party will be completely out of control. By morning, the Riva mansion will have gone up in flames. But before that first spark in the early hours before dawn, the alcohol will flow, the music will play, and the loves and secrets that shaped this family's generations will all come bubbling to the surface.
Join Taylor in conversation with author and podcaster Pandora Sykes for this exclusive event as she celebrates her new novel: a wonderfully juicy recreation of the glamour and excess of 1980s California. In conversation, she’ll explore her fascination with the difference between inner and outer lives, her experience of working in Hollywood and how she is inspired by The Great Gatsby. Taylor will also touch on the interconnectedness of her storytelling – eagle-eyed fans of Reid’s writing will recognise members of the Riva family from her hit novels The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and Daisy Jones and the Six.
Don’t miss the chance to spend an evening with Taylor, as she shares the story of one unforgettable night in the life of a family: the night they each have to choose what they will keep from the people who made them… and what they will leave behind.
