A Night In with Joanne Harris
To mark the publication of A Narrow Door
Men walk in through the main gates. Women have to improvise.
From the Sunday Times and internationally bestselling, multi prize-winning author of Chocolat, Joanne Harris, comes A Narrow Door: an explosive psychological thriller about one woman who, having carved out her own path to power, is now intent on tearing apart the elite world that tried to hold her back… piece by piece.
It’s an incendiary moment for St Oswald’s school. For the first time in its history, a headmistress is in power, the gates opening to female students.
Rebecca Buckfast has spilled blood to reach this position. Barely forty, she is just starting to reap the harvest of her ambition. As the new regime takes on the old guard, the ground shifts. And with it, the remains of a body are discovered.
But Rebecca is here to make her mark. She’ll bury the past so deep it will evade even her own memory, just like she has done before.
After all, you can’t keep a good woman down.
Join Joanne in conversation for this exclusive event, as she shares the inspiration behind her newest novel and how it links to her other thrillers set in the St Oswald's world.
