A question asked – and a book written – by Rosie Wilby, who will be discussing this topic on Thursday 19 April at 6pm at Lee Humphries’ Printed Matter Bookshop. 

In early 2013, comedian, musician, writer and broadcaster Rosie Wilby found herself at a crossroads with everything she’d ever believed about romantic relationships. When people asked: ‘Who’s the love of your life?’, there was no simple answer.

Did they mean her former flatmate with whom she’d experienced the most ecstatic, heady, yet ultimately doomed, fling? Or did they mean the deep, lasting companionate partnerships that gave her a sense of belonging and family? Surely, most human beings need both?

Mixing humour, heartache and science, Is Monogamy Dead? details Rosie’s very personal quest to find out why Western society is clinging to a concept that doesn’t work that well for some of us and is laden with ambiguous assumptions.

Is Monogamy Dead? A discussion with author Rosie Wilby on Thursday 19 April at 6pm at Printed Matter Bookshop, 185 Queens Road, Hastings, TN34 1RG. Tickets £2.
