Niven Govinden’s fifth novel explores 90s ballroom culture and its aftermath; Andrew McMillan has called it ‘a moving plural lament, a prayer for the unheard, the unrelenting, the unvanquished’.

He’ll be discussing This Brutal House (Dialogue Books) and queer cultures, past and present, with Amelia Abraham, journalist and author of Queer Intentions (Picador) and Isabel Waidner, editor of Liberating the Canon: An Anthology of Innovative Literature and author of We Are Made of Diamond Stuff (Dostoyevsky Wannabe).
