Acclaimed Novelist, Salley Vickers will Discuss and Sign her New Novel, Cousins at David's Bookshop

Wednesday 14 June 2017
7:30 pm

’No one can dig down into the shrouded recesses of the human heart quite as forensically as Vickers’ Sunday Times

Will Tye and his cousin Cele are kindred spirits who have grown up together. But their very closeness keeps them at a troubled distance until the night that Will recklessly embarks on a misadventure with devastating consequences. It’s a tragedy that engulfs three generations of the Tye family, laying bare dangerous secrets that stretch as far back as the Second World War. It also opens up new wounds, leaving the Tye family with agonising questions about retribution for the days, months and years to come. Yet for Will and Cele it cements a bond like no other – a bond that will only be finally broken by an act of exceptional courage and self sacrifice, one which imperils them both but leads at last to a tentative resolution.  

Salley Vickers is the author of seven highly acclaimed novels, including Miss Garnet’s Angel and The Cleaner of Chartres. She was born in Liverpool and grew up in the Potteries, in Stoke-on-Trent, where her parents were active members of the Communist Party. She has worked as a university teacher of literature and as a psychoanalyst, which developed her interest in the effects of trans-generational trauma. She has family connections with both Cumbria and the North East and currently divides her time between London, Bath, Marlborough and Oxford. 

Tickets are £8.99 and include a copy of the paperback book. To book tickets, please ring the shop on 01462684631 or call in to the shop.
