Heavenly Pleasures explores representations of love across cultures: from East to West, from the physical to the spiritual. Featuring French writer Catherine Millet, whose internationally best-selling memoir, The Sexual Life of Catherine M, was dubbed ' ... a manifesto of our times', and Florian Zeller who explores the relationship between the West and Islam from the point of view of a young man on a quest for pleasure in his novel, Fascination of Evil.

Joining them is Leila Aboulela, a Sudanese writer whose celebrated novel The Translator looks at the difficulty of loving someone of another faith. This event is chaired by Lisa Appignanesi, award-winning author of Freud's Women and Unholy Loves and President of English PEN.
