About this book:

A quirky, warm novel of eccentric adventure from the bestselling author of A PLACE CALLED WINTER

Domina Tey is a playwright, celebrated by friends, her husband, and the public alike, yet she fears losing her vital edge.

Her solution: to leave her beautiful home in Bristol and seek adventure in a squalid West London bedsit, where she will live under an assumed name with only her typewriter for companionship. Once installed, however, she can’t resist meddling in the business of others, forgetting that blurring fact with fiction can be a dangerous game.

Patrick Gale is among the great, unsung English novelists. Think Austen, Hardy, Murdoch. Remarkable’
