Don’t miss the launch of Katharine Kilalea’s mesmerising debut novel OK, Mr Field at The Book Lounge (20 Mar)
 More about the book!

Jonathan Ball Publishers and The Book Lounge invite you to an evening with Katharine Kilalea, author of OK, Mr Field.

Katharine will be in conversation with Hedley Twidle, author of Firepool.

OK, Mr Field was named one of the Best Books of 2018 by Publishers Weekly and Lit Hub.

‘Dazzling … Luminous … As with much of Beckett’s writing, OK, Mr Field is often bleakly comic. But at moments it is also tender (without being sentimental), depicting the strange dream-like inner life of someone who is terribly lonely … OK, Mr Field introduces a striking new voice in fiction.’
– The Economist

Kilalea grew up in South Africa and moved to London for an MA in Creative Writing from the University of East Anglia. She has published a poetry collection, One Eye’d Leigh, which was shortlisted for the Costa Poetry Award and longlisted for the International Dylan Thomas Prize. She lives in London.
