New Sarah Waters novel due Autumn 2014
13th Sep 2013
Publisher Lennie Goodings labelled it “vintage” Sarah Waters. Currently without a title, it will be set in the early twenties, with the poor and hungry demanding change amidst reams of disillusioned ex-servicemen.
The book will focus on impoverished widow Mrs Wray and her spinster daughter Frances, owners of a villa in Camberwell whose world is shaken up by the arrival of young, modern lodgers: married, newly middle-class couple Lilian and Leonard Barber.
Virago promised that “passions mount and frustration gathers.” It probably goes without saying, but we cannot wait.
