About An Evening With Genevieve Jagger

Listed Under Books Events

Already feted by writers like Elle Nash, Jagger's book promises to be a literary sensation for 2024, and Jagger joins us on release day. She will discuss writing dark fiction, memory and trauma, the lure of the supernatural, writing as a Scot, and more in an event chaired by C. E. McGill, author of feminist Frankenstein retelling Our Hideous Progeny.

Fragile Animals
When an ex-catholic woman develops a sexual relationship with a vampire, she is forced to confront the memories that haunt her religious past.
Struggling to deal with the familial trauma of her Catholic upbringing, hotel cleaner, Noelle, travels to the Isle of Bute. There, she meets a man who claims to be a vampire, and a relationship blooms between them based solely on confession. But as talk grows sacrilegious, and the weather outside grows colder, Noelle becomes hounded by memories of her past – her blasphemous sexuality, and the love she lost while stuck in the closet; of her mother’s affair with the local priest, and the part she played in ending it.
