Swans, handsome cannibals, confronting the past in Latvia, censorship and imaginary boyfriends.

Funhouse and PEN Atlas present a series of readings that explore body, borders and place. Join us to hear the 'delicate rhythmic trip wires' of Kayo Chingoyi whose debut collection Kumukunda is published in June, Xiaolu Guo's searing and rebellious memoir, Once Upon a Time in the East, exploring the everyday peculiarity of China and the UK, Eli Goldstone's debut novel of 'savage tenderness' Strange Heart Beating, and the bodily writing of Sophie Mackintosh, Jenna Clake and Susannah Dickey, whose work features in the third issue of Funhouse.

The latest issue of Funhouse magazine features writing by Sarah Gerard (Sunshine State, Harper Collins, 2017), Edward Doegar (For Now, Clinic, 2017), Tobias Carroll (Reel, Rare Bird Lit, 2017) and comics from Bridget M.
