Event description

Description

Blackwell's are very pleased to be hosting the launch of Tabatha Stirling's latest novel, Bitter Leaves. Tabatha will be joining us in the bookshop to chat about her new book and answer your questions about all things literary.

About the Book

Welcome to the black heart of Singapore’s maid culture, where a woman’s life is cheap in one
of the richest countries in the world. Here are the voices of the unheard, of maid and employer, of village girl and city dweller. Follow Lucilla, Ma’am Leslie, Shammi and Madame Eunice as they strive, each in her own way,
to exist in a country in which dark shadows lie beneath its pristine exterior. The lives of these women are woven together by a narrative which is always candid and often brutal, as it explores the effects of loss, madness, abuse and hope during a woman's life and in society as a whole.

About the Author

Tabatha Stirling lives in Edinburgh, Scotland with her Warrior-Poet husband, two beloved children, and a depressed Beagle called The Beagle. When she's not writing or baking cupcakes, she is thinking about writing, reading, designing book covers, gaming or watching dark, blood-splattered dramas like the Walking Dead, Ray Donavon, and Sons of Anarchy.
