Piglet with Lottie Hazell, a Mr B’s Event

8 February @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Mr B’s are thrilled to welcome Lottie Hazell to discuss her new book Piglet.

Razor-sharp, and simply unforgettable, Piglet is about women’s ambitions and appetites, and the lies we tell ourselves to appease our egos and quieten our fears. Listen as she talks about food in fiction, life cravings, and what it means to be ultimately satisfied.

Lottie will be in conversation with author and cook, Kate Young, who’s debut novel Experienced will be out in May this year.

About Piglet:

For Piglet – an unshakable childhood nickname – getting married is her opportunity to reinvent. Together, Kit and Piglet are the picture of domestic bliss – effortless hosts, planning a covetable wedding … But if a life looks too good to be true, it probably is.

Thirteen days before they are due to be married, Kit reveals an awful truth, cracking the façade Piglet has created. It has the power to strip her of the life she has so carefully built, so smugly shared. To do something about it would be to self-destruct. But what will it cost her to do nothing?

As the hours count down to their wedding, Piglet is torn between a growing appetite and the desire to follow the recipe, follow the rules. Surely, with her husband, she could be herself again. Wouldn’t it be a waste for everything to curdle now?

Piglet is luscious and disturbing and propulsive, and I completely devoured it. It’s a book about hunger and secrecy and women made small by convention. And it’s a book that tears at the surface of things to reveal the vast, messy truth of a body with a beating heart” ― Catherine Newman, author of We All Want Impossible Things

Intriguing, propulsive, delicious and ultimately satisfying: I devoured it in two days, and suffice to say, it’s a book you’ll want on your 2024 reading list.” ― Claire Daverley, author of Talking at Night

“This book! Visceral, brilliantly dark, and so smart. An object lesson in how our relentless pursuit of a tickbox life will never make us happy. Characters that pop, writing you could eat.” – Fran Littlewood, author of Amazing Grace Adams
