Fashion and Fiction: Linda Grant
Victoria & Albert Museum, Cromwell Road, London, SW7 2RL
EVENING EVENT: Orange Prize winning novelist Linda Grant has always written brilliantly about fashion in her fiction.
Her novels The Cast Iron Shore, and The Clothes On Their Backs make clothes key to understanding character, identity and history. Linda also worked as a fashion journalist for Vogue, and has strong views about our label culture and the ‘chicklitization’ of fashion in modern fiction. Linda argues the case for fashion in fiction, by discussing her own novels and the great fashion-and-fiction writers such as Marcel Proust, Virginia Woolf and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Hosted by Rosie Goldsmith.
