"A breath-taking, chromium-shiny, tale of how dark the sunniest places can be and how very desperate things can get in a cracking slice of dark Americana"
Well, a debut doesn't come more well-honed than Inga Vesper’s absolutely cracking slice of dark Americana, The Long, Long Afternoon, which is set in the summer of 1959 and encompasses a gripping mystery with an excoriating vision of the ways in which women everywhere are under-estimated, silenced and diminished.
Beautifully written with scenes and characters that take you right back to a time of mail-order catalogues, mother’s ‘little helper’ and the appalling casualness of race and gender inequality, Inga has created a breath-taking, chromium-shiny, tale of how dark the sunniest places can be and how very desperate things can get.
The LoveReading LitFest invited Inga to the festival to talk about The Long, Long Afternoon.
The digitally native, all year round, online literature and books festival, with new content released every week is a free-for-all-users festival.
