He Said/SheSaid: the truth is, it’s brilliant

Welcome to your next must-read novel

We’ve been huge fans of Erin Kelly since her brilliant debut novel, The Poison Tree, an elegant, elegiac thriller of which Stephen King himself commented ‘I wish I’d written this’. But her latest novel, He Said She Said, raises the bar even higher and is her finest work to date.

When in the hushed aftermath of an eclipse, young couple Laura and Kit think that they’ve witnessed a rape, four lives are changed forever. Part court-room drama, part flash back and wholly brilliant, HSSS is poised, sensitive and entirely gripping, the sort of novel that you simply can’t stop reading while at the same time not wanting to end…and it’s  paced to perfection.

We’re delighted to welcome Erin to the shop to talk about her book and her career at 7.30 on June 17. Entrance is free, but booking is required. Call or email to reserve your place
