Judith Thurman is a long-time staff writer on fashion, culture and literature for the New Yorker, where she “effortlessly locates the sublime in the everyday: whether it's tofu or handbags, she can find an angle on her subject that makes even the most pedestrian object compelling”. Her biography of Isak Dinesen formed the basis of the classic film “Out of Africa” and won a National Book Award. The New York Times called her biography of French writer Colette “a burnished, historically opulent, elegant, distinguished work”. Her latest book, Cleopatra’s Nose: 39 Varieties of Desire, is a collection of essays spanning 20 years at The New Yorker which range from the art of making tofu to profiles of famous personalities (and the clothes they wore) – from Cleopatra and Marie Antoinette to Jackie Onassis and Hillary Clinton, from Giorgio Armani to Nazi film-maker Leni Riefenstahl. Enjoy Judith’s extraordinary storytelling, and a sublime lunch. Introduction: Zambesi’s Liz Findlay.
Please note: door sales are not available, and all seats must be booked by Tuesday 12 May.
