A Secret Sisterhood is out today in the USA

I’m delighted to announce that my book A Secret Sisterhood: The literary friendships of Jane Austen, Charlotte Brontë, George Eliot, and Virginia Woolf (with a foreword by Margaret Atwood, and co-written with Emma Claire Sweeney) is published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt today.

To mark the occasion, Emma and I feel honoured to have a piece about the rivalrous friendship of Katherine Mansfield and Virginia Woolf in the Paris Review. If you are interested in finding out more about this, and the other friendships we celebrate in our book, today’s blog post on Something Rhymed, the literary blog I run with Emma, takes a look back at some of our recent reviews and articles.

After knowing Emma for well over a decade-and-a-half, it is wonderful to have chance to celebrate this milestone in our own writing friendship.

A Secret Sisterhood is out now

After years of research and writing, I’m delighted that A Secret Sisterhood – co-written with Emma Claire Sweeney, and with a foreword by Margaret Atwood – is out in the UK.

Emma and I are so pleased to have had the chance to offer something of a taster of the book in interviews and feature articles with the Daily Telegraph, the Yorkshire Post and The Pool, among others.

We’ve also got some related events coming up, the next one being a talk with author and playwright Samantha Ellis at Waterstones Crouch End on Wednesday 7 June.

Tickets are £4 and can be reserved here.
