About the Event

When Monique Roffey was awarded the Costa Book Award for The Mermaid of Black Conch, a dark love story between a fisherman and a woman cursed to live as a mermaid in the Caribbean waters for centuries, the judges described the novel as ‘a classic in the making’ from a writer ‘at the height of her powers’. 15 years in the making, Leone Ross’ This One Sky Day has been similarly lauded. Tracking star-crossed lovers on a magical Caribbean Island over the course of one day, it was described by The Guardian as ‘a glorious shout of a novel, a sensual, saturated blend of romance, magical realism and erotic comedy’. They talk to Sara Collins about their extraordinary novels.
