The Sex Lives of English Women

Wednesday 23 November 2016 at 5.30pm

For her new book, The Sex Lives of English Women, Wendy Jones interviewed twenty-four women from all walks of life including a burlesque dancer, a girl guide leader, a ninety-four year old, a transsexual, a nun, a polyamorist and a sexual healer.

The women talked about their lives, bodies, sexual fantasies and relationships, how they’ve been hurt, what they enjoy and what they long for. Wendy was the first person to gain an MA in Life Writing from the University of East Anglia and subsequently a PhD in Creative Writing from Goldsmiths’ College.

Her books include the bestselling Portrait of the Artist as a Young Girl, a Biography of Grayson Perry, and several novels including The World is a Wedding. From 2007-2010 she was the presenter of Interesting Conversations, interviews with writers on Resonance FM. Her next book is Men Talk Sex.

The event will take place in the Brunel Library, doors open at 5pm for wine and nibbles. Come along and be part of the conversation. It’s free but you’ll need to book in advance at:
