Salena Godden is a renown poet and performer based in London. She has a longstanding career as an activist, broadcaster, memoirist and essayist and is widely anthologised. In December 2018 BBC Radio 4 broadcast a documentary which followed Salena for 12 months while she worked on her debut novel Mrs Death Misses Death which will be published by Canongate in January 2021. Seamlessly blending literary forms, the novel tells the story of the friendship between Wolf, a troubled young writer, and Death, personified as a homeless black woman who shape-shifts. Salena herself describes it as a celebration of the everyday miracle of our survival.
For the first time, Salena will perform a live reading from Mrs Death Misses Death and let the listener travel through time.
