A petition worth signing… pet theft


Harper’s Bazaar: the September issue

Thanks for such a wonderful review of my Last Landlady, one of two runner-ups in the Big Book award.  Also my little piece in the Worn With Love feature, about a black hat I wore when I went to the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe with my father. How nice to have him AND my grandmother in there…

Hearst Big Book Awards nomination for The Last Landlady


This is just the best news. Not least because the subject of the book – my grandmother Violet – was a devoted subscriber to Harper’s.

Thanks so much for this wonderful nomination.
