Since then he has been a mystery to her. Xanthi Barker (Will This House Last Forever?) lost her father when she was in her mid twenties and she could make no sense of her grief for a man who had been absent for most of her life. They discuss their beautifully written memoirs: the relationships with their often-problematic fathers and the power that family stories have over us long into adulthood. https://stokenewingtonlitfest.eventcube.io/events/40305/lily-dunn-xanthi-barker-sins-of-our-fathers 39a Newington Green, London, N16 9PR
