We are feeling extremely lucky to have this event so please join us for a big celebration for the launch of Gender Theory by (Mount Floridian!!) Madeline Docherty. 

You lose your virginity to a boy from your gender theory seminar, and the first person you tell is Ella. Ella's with you at the party when you first kiss a girl. And Ella takes you to the hospital the first time you're diagnosed.

Over the next few years you have a string of relationships and jobs, but you can always count on Ella to be there for you - until the drinking and the parties, the hospital visits and late-night calls, blur the lines of your friendship into something unbalanced and fragile, at risk of breaking altogether. The worst part is you can see it coming. The worst part is you don't know how to stop.

From a blazing new voice in Scottish fiction, Gender Theory is an incisive, affecting debut about illness, identity and how we care for those around us.

'Beautifully captures the pain of growing into yourself, and the intensity of all-consuming female friendship' ROSE WILDING
