An Evening with Jessica Andrews
We absolutely loved Jessica Andrew's debut novel _Saltwater _and are

thrilled that she'll be joining us to talk about her brand new one

_Milk Teeth_ on publication in July. It is _the_ book for the Summer

months - sticky, heady, lush, sexy ..._Milk Teeth_ is an intimate love

story that explores how to take up space in the world, and why we deny

ourselves good things.    A girl grows up in the north-east of

England amid scarcity, precarity and a toxic culture of bodily shame,

certain that she must make herself ever smaller to be loved. Years

later, living in tiny rented rooms and working in noisy bars across

London and Paris, she fights to create her own life.



She meets someone who cracks her open and offers her a new way to

experience the world. But when he invites her to join him in

Barcelona, the promise of pleasure and care makes her uneasy. In the

shimmering heat of the Mediterranean, she faces the possibility of a

different existence, and must choose what to hold on to from her past.



How do we learn to take up space? _Milk Teeth_ is a story of desire

and the body, shame and joy. In vivid and lyrical prose, and with a

deep and ardent compassion, Jessica Andrews examines what it means to

allow ourselves to live. 'Milk Teeth spills over with care, truth and

desire. Andrews makes the case for a life lived abundantly and

ardently, full of sensation and pleasure, risk and safety' Yara

Rodrigues Fowler''
