In conversation with... Claire Fuller

free entry - 7pm - instore

Join us in the shop and in conversation with Claire Fuller, to coincide with paperback release of her critically acclaimed third novel Bitter Orange.

Bitter Orange, a novel about loneliness, secrets and lies, is set in a real-life Hampshire country house. In 1969 Frances falls under the spell of a captivating, bohemian couple until she is drawn so far into their lives she cannot escape. Claire will talk about the how Bitter Orange came about, its themes, her writing processes, and what other books inspire her. Claire Fuller didn’t start writing until she was 40.

She’s the author of three novels: Our Endless Numbered Days (winner of the Desmond Elliott Prize), Swimming Lessons (shortlisted for the Encore Award), and most recently, the critically acclaimed, Bitter Orange. She also writes short stories and flash fiction, and has won the Royal Academy / Pin Drop short story prize amongst others.

“Fuller creates an atmosphere of simmering menace with all the assurance of a latter-day Daphne du Maurier.” The Times.
