Description

Ealing Libraries Black Culture & History Season Presents:

Author in Conversation: Sara Collins

One of the year’s most exciting debuts, The Confessions of Frannie Langton draws on the gothic tones of Jane Eyre and Wide Sargasso Sea for an enthralling historical mystery. Moving from the plantations of Jamaica to the drawing rooms of 1820’s London, Collins’ novel spins out a darkly hypnotic story of slavery, freedom and of the wonderful
and dreadful secrets bodies give up under the cover of darkness. An unforgettable story from a powerful new literary voice.

Sara Collins is of Jamaican descent and grew up in Grand Cayman and studied law at the London School of Economics and worked as a lawyer for seventeen years before doing a Master of Studies in Creative Writing at Cambridge University, where she was the recipient of the 2015 Michael Holroyd Prize for Creative Writing.
