Taking selfies is not the exclusive preserve of millennials. In Selfies, Sylvie Weil gives a playful twist to the concept of self-representation: taking her cue from self-portraits by women artists, ranging from the 13th century through the Renaissance to Frida Kahlo and Vivian Maier. Throughout this collection of short texts, Weil creates an unusual genre: the literary selfie. She will be discussing this new variation of writing self-portrait with her translator Ros Schwartz and with writer, translator and critic Amanda Hopkinson.
