Meat & Greet with Juno Dawson

Meat & Greet with Juno Dawson

Waterstones Brighton
25th Jul 2019 7:30 pm
Join bestselling author Juno Dawson as she chats about her new novel Meat Market, a raw and timely exposé of the dark underbelly of the fashion industry. Meat Market follows Jana Novak, an ordinary girl from a south London estate, lifted to unimaginable heights in the fashion industry. Her history sounds like a classic model cliché: tall and gangly, she's uncomfortable with her androgynous looks until she's unexpectedly scouted and catapulted into superstardom. But the fashion industry is as grimy as it is glamorous. And there are unexpected predators at every turn. A rags-to-riches story with a difference, Meat Market was inspired by Juno's experiences working on the fringes of the fashion industry as a journalist and occasional model. Written before the Weinstein scandal broke and following two years of research with access to models, editors and agents, the 'glamorous' world of fashion became her landscape. Seduced by an air-brushed world of perfect, Juno realised there was something wrong with the picture; that exploitation of young girls is still evident, and that fashion and beauty needs to be 'part of a much bigger feminist conversation'. Juno Dawson is the multi award-winning author of 11 books, including the best-selling Clean and her adult memoir, The Gender Games. Dawson is a regular contributor to Attitude, GT, Glamour and the Guardian and has contributed to news items concerning sexuality, identity, literature and education on BBC Woman's Hour, Front Row, This Morning and Newsnight.
