Description

We are so excited to be welcoming Elizabeth Macneal to the shop to talk about her debut novel The Doll Factory.

The Doll Factory by Elizabeth Macneal is the intoxicating story of a young woman who aspires to be an artist, and the man whose obsession may destroy her world for ever.

London. 1850. The greatest spectacle the city has ever seen is being built in Hyde Park, and among the crowd watching two people meet. For Iris, an aspiring artist, it is the encounter of a moment – forgotten seconds later, but for Silas, a collector entranced by the strange and beautiful, that meeting marks a new beginning.

When Iris is asked to model for pre-Raphaelite artist Louis Frost, she agrees on the condition that he will also teach her to paint. Suddenly her world begins to expand, to become a place of art and love.

But Silas has only thought of one thing since their meeting, and his obsession is darkening...

The Doll Factory, Elizabeth’s debut novel, won the Caledonia Novel Award 2018 and has been described as "A sharp, scary, gorgeously evocative tale of love, art and obsession" by Paula Hawkins, author of The Girl on the Train.

Doors open at 6:30 for a 7PM start
