Women in Dark Times
Journalist and author Susan McKay hosts Professor Jacqueline Rose with award–winning author of The Lesser Bohemians and A Girl is A Half Formed Thing, Eimear McBride, for a lively discussion of both writers' work and their connection to each other. Jacqueline Rose is a long–time admirer of Eimear McBride's writing, once telling her that she was “high risk”.
Jacqueline’s visionary Women in Dark Times, ranges across the 20th and 21st centuries, arguing vigorously that feminism is a work in progress. Unlikely fellow travellers German-Jewish painter Charlotte Salomon, revolutionary socialist Rosa Luxemburg and Hollywood actress Marilyn Monroe are women in “dark times” with the courage to bring the “unspeakable to light”.
