The Snakes Chosen for Richard and Judy Book Club


The Snakes by author and screenwriter Sadie Jones has been chosen for the Richard and Judy Book Club, alongside novels by Philippa Gregory, Christy Lefteri and Mike Gayle.

Judy Finnigan said “This is an extraordinary book, beautifully written, modern but with overtones of gothic horror, wrapped around themes of race, class, wealth, cruelty and corruption.”

Sadie Jones’ first novel, The Outcast, won the Costa First Novel Award 2008, was shortlisted for the Orange Prize, and was a Richard and Judy Summer Reads #1 bestseller. Her second novel, Small Wars, was longlisted for the Orange Prize. Her third, published in 2010, The Uninvited Guests, was closely followed by her fourth, Fallout, in 2014.
