Author of the Week: Hannah Begbie

Hannah Begbie joins the Great Big Book Club today as Author of the Week to share her thought-provoking, page turner ‘Blurred Lines’. Blurred Lines is the story of Becky, a young woman who sees her boss sleeping with a woman that is not his wife. The plot thickens as his boss is accused with raping this ‘other’ woman. Juxtaposing Becky’s own trauma with the many different themes of victim-blaming, #MeToo & sexual assault, this book is an untangling of blurred lines. This is an ode to the huge number of sexual assault ‘survivors’ who have risked everything to tell the truth. Today Hannah shares her take on the universal #MeToo experience of women, the patriarchy & the unique power plays of men & young women in the film industry & business world as a whole.
