  • Alex Hourston

    After fifteen years writing strategy for advertising agencies, Alex Hourston took a break to go back to university and her first love, books. She completed a Masters in English and started a PhD, but put it aside when the idea for this novel surfaced. Alex lives outside Brighton with her family. She is working on her second novel, an exploration of infidelity and emotional inheritance.

“'I inhaled the book, really, in one long, cool, quenching breath... it is written with such linguistic and emotional precision - not a word or thought out of place - and its examination of what it means to love honestly and truthfully, both as an individual and as part of a marriage and a family, had me utterly gripped from the first paragraph. Few other novels have absorbed me so fully this year. It deserves to do very well and I’m sure it will.’”
- Laura Barnett
“’A beautifully written page turner of a book’”
- Kate Hamer
