Her 2017 debut novel ‘The Invisible Crowd’ was awarded the Victor Turner Prize for ethnographic writing and was a ‘Guardian’ book of the year. Ellen speaks to Georgina Godwin about her latest book ‘Live Literature’, which takes readers along to different in-person literary events, exploring why they have become so popular and what significance they have to literary culture.
