Session No. 146 

Annabel Kantaria is one of our very own literary success stories. The winner of the inaugural Emirates Lit Fest Writing Prize in 2013, she has gone on to publish five novels in the popular ‘domestic noir’ genre. She joins us to talk about her writing life and the dark psychology that underpins her novels, illustrated by her latest work, the spine-chilling House of Whispers, about a toxic friendship between Abi and Grace and the repercussions when they reconnect many years later.

Annabel Kantaria (Anna Kent) is a journalist and novelist. She spent a week as ‘Writer in Residence’ at Dubai Central Prison, as part on the Emirates Literature Foundation’s ‘From The Inside Out’ project.
