This event brings together two writers whose experimental take on narrative is pushing ction in exciting new directions. Claire-Louise Bennett won the inaugural White Review Short Story Prize in 2013 and writes both ction and creative non- ction. Her debut collection of stories, Pond, has just been published. Christine Montalbetti is a professor of literature at the University of Paris and the author of several scholarly works on narrative. Her playful and digressive tales like Western (in which the story of a mysterious gunslinger is continually sidetracked by the viewpoint of passing ants) are nally appearing in English, con rming her reputation as one of the most engaging experimental writers working today.
