Join us for a conversation with Julia Rochester, a novelist whose debut novel The House at the Edge of the World (Viking) was shortlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize and longlisted for the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction.
"Wonderfully crisp and funny, and so full of vivid, surprising images that the reader almost doesn't notice the moment that deep secrets begin to be revealed. I enjoyed this book so much" Emma Healey, bestselling author of Elizabeth is Missing.
Part mystery, part psychological drama, The House at the Edge of the World is a darkly comic, unorthodox and thrilling debut.
In past lives, Julia was a researcher and campaigner on Amnesty International’s Brazil Team, set up her own small publishing company, Corvo Books, and worked for the BBC World Service.
