Daisy Johnson

Daisy Johnson The youngest author to make the Man Booker Prize short list discusses her critically acclaimed debut novel centred on the awful, wonderful, terrifying mother-daughter relationship Everything Under. SCI 105, Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, Tuesday 13 November 2018, 6:00-7:00pm At 28 years old Daisy is the youngest novelist to be short listed for the Booker Prize.

It is a story of family and identity, of fate, language, love and belonging that leaves you unsettled and unstrung. Critically acclaimed ‘A deeply involving, unsettling novel that pulls the reader into a eerie yet recognisable world.” (Sunday Times), "Infused with dark fairy tale, Oedipal tragedy and Freudian desire, this is...

Speakers explore the cultural importance of pattern, ornament and decoration. We begin from the observation that what is so often missing is the significance  – the meaning – of ornament, which has become lost or eroded, but was once all-pervasive. The multiple practice-based and theoretical lenses...
