Chloe Aridjis and Juliet Jacques: Sea Monsters

Chloe Aridjis’s third novel Sea Monsters, set in Mexico in the late 1980s, describes the elopement of Mexico City schoolgirl with a boy she barely knows, in search of freedom, independence and rather more oddly, a troupe of Ukrainian dwarfs who have recently escaped from a Soviet travelling circus. Aridjis was at the shop to read from and talk about her new book, described by Garth Greenwell as ‘mesmerizing, revelatory … a profound and poetic tool for navigating our shared world.’

Aridjis was in conversation with Juliet Jacques.
