London Nov 2023 Event - Both Featured Books
Small Pleasures by Clare Chambers & I'm Sorry You Feel That Way by Rebecca Wait
Clare Chambers was longlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction with her word-of-mouth bestseller, Small Pleasures. Set in 1957 London suburbia, Jean Swinney is a journalist on a local paper, trapped in a life of duty and disappointment. When a young woman contacts the paper claiming she has had a virgin birth, Jean is sent to determine whether this is a miracle or a fraud. Her investigation leads her out of her quiet life into a world of friendship, love and, possibly, happiness.
This is an exclusive Hardback Special Edition, including recipes and and an author interview.
Rebecca Wait's previous novels include The View on the Way Down, The Followers and Our Fathers. She has also written for national media and teaches at a London secondary school. Published to rave reviews, I'm Sorry You Feel That Way is an archly comic, deeply affecting family drama.‘
'Toxic mothers, absent fathers, angry sisters and enraging brothers – this sharp, wise comedy explores difficult family dynamics, from all-too-relatable emotional patterns to the inexplicable agonies of mental illness; yet it’s also one of the funniest novels you’ll read this year.' The Guardian, 50 Hottest Books for Summer
