Julie Myerson is the author of nine novels, including the bestselling Something Might Happen and three works of non-fiction, including Home: The Story of Everyone Who Ever Lived In Our House, which was dramatised on BBC Radio 4, and The Lost Child. As a critic and columnist, she has written for many newspapers including the Guardian, the FT, Harpers Bazaar and the New York Times, and she was a regular guest on BBC TV’s Newsnight Review. She lives in London and Suffolk with her family.
It’s a gothic thriller that doesn’t go over the top; more alarming still for its literary precision... This is a book that you will turn through the night to reach its conclusion — Myerson has you dying for the end and even surer that you will do just that when you get there.
