Bitch Lit is our monthly book club devoted to new feminist writing and cult classics by women. Join us for wine and irreverent, fun discussion led by literary critic Lucy Scholes.Junes Bitch Lit will discuss Ismat Chughtais Lifting the Veil, a powerful and deeply irreverent collection of short stories and non-fiction from one of Indias most controversial feminist writers.Wickedly funny and unflinchingly honest, Lifting the Veil explores the power of female sexuality while slyly mocking the subtle tyrannies of middle-class life. In 1940s India, an unlikely setting for female rebellion, Ismat Chughtai was a rare and radical storyteller born years ahead of her time.Numbers strictly limited, please book promptly to avoid disappointment. Tickets are 8/6 (students and Plus cardholders) and include a glass of wine or soft drink. Books for next month's Bitch Lit will be on sale.
