Never one to shy away from challenging material, bestselling American author Leslie Jamison returns with Splinters, a memoir that probes the rebuilding of a life after the end of a marriage.

Exploring motherhood, art and new love, she deploys the powerful thinking, scorching honesty and magnetic prose that made The Empathy Exams and The Recovering instant classics.

Jamison shares the stage with Rebecca Harkins-Cross to discuss her literary tour de force that showcases her ability to ‘stitch together the intellectual and the emotional with the finesse of a crackerjack surgeon’ (NPR).
