Spoke presents Joelle Taylor: The Night Alphabet

Award-winning poet Joelle Taylor performs a staged reading from her mesmerising debut novel The Night Alphabet, directed by Neil Bartlett.

Hackney, 2233: a woman walks into a tattoo parlour. Her body is covered all over with tattoos, but she wants to add one final inking to her gallery – a thin line connecting the haunting images of her body art together. But if you followed this strand, what narrative do these images tell you?

This event is a staged reading by Joelle Taylor from her debut novel The Night Alphabet, directed by acclaimed writer and director Neil Bartlett, and with an on-stage Q&A with Joelle.

Set across geographies and timespans, replete with literary fireworks, The Night Alphabet is a furious, gripping, dazzlingly original novel and a deep and bold investigation into violence, resilience and women’s stories. It is published by Riverrun in February 2024.

Joelle Taylor is the author of 4 collections of poetry. Her most recent, C+NTO & Othered Poems won the 2021 TS Eliot Prize, the 2022 Polari Book Prize for LGBT authors, and is currently being adapted for the theatre.
