Katherine J Chen
Our Curators said...
This is easily my favourite book published this year. With astounding clarity and momentum, Chen manages to fill in the colour to this character for whom history has only drawn the sketched edges. The writing is impeccable, the plot perfectly balanced…it’s simply delicious. Fans of Hilary Mantel and Maggie O’Farrell’s ‘Hamnet’ will love it. I’ll be astonished if it doesn’t win a prize or two.
