Katy Darby introduces The Whores’ Asylum. Sound bite from Ellen Dibsdall

Deptford Lounge
Giffin Square SE8 4RJ
Tuesday 19 June
6.45 for 7-8.30pm

The Whores’ Asylum is Katy’s first novel. Foyles Bookshop describe the novel as “a terrific slice of Victorian Gothic, full of roguery and romance, as students vow to help the fallen women of Oxford’s seediest locales.” The book will appear in paperback as The Unpierced Heart later this year. Her work has been read on BBC Radio, and published in various magazines and anthologies. Katy has received the David Higham Award. As well as teaching Short Story and Novel Writing at City University, Katy co-runs Liars’ League, a monthly short story reading night in Central London.
