About the Event
On Wednesday 13th September Sophie Haydock will talk about The Flames. (2022). Her debut novel won the Impress Prize for New Writers. It is about the four ‘muses’ who posed for the controversial artist Egon Schiele in Vienna more than a century ago. Sophie curates an Instagram page to celebrate the women who were painted by Schiele. She writes that they are ‘His fiery little sister Gertrude, his sensual and independent muse and lover Vally Neuzil, and the well-to-do sisters ... Adele and Edith Harms’. Sophie trained as a journalist and has worked for the Sunday Times, Tatler, the Financial Times, the Guardian, the Arts Council, Royal Academy and Sotheby’s. She is associate director of the Word Factory literary organisation. More about her here
