Events This March at Jaffé and Neale

Join us for an evening in conversation with Clare Mackintosh to celebrate the launch of her new book Let Me Lie on Wednesday 14th March, 6.30-8pm

**THIS EVENT HAS NOW SOLD OUT!**

About the book:

The police say it was suicide. Anna says it was murder. They’re both wrong. One year ago, Caroline Johnson chose to end her life brutally: a shocking suicide planned to match that of her husband just months before. Their daughter,  Anna,  has struggled to come to terms with their loss ever since. Now with a young baby of her own,  Anna misses her mother more than ever and starts to ask questions about her parents’ deaths.

But by digging up the past, is she putting her future in danger? Sometimes it’s safer to let things lie . . . The stunning, twisty new psychological thriller from number one bestseller Clare Mackintosh, author of I LET YOU GO and I SEE YOU.

 

Praise for Let Me Lie:

“Another one-more-chapter, stay-up-late sensation from Clare Mackintosh. No doubt about it now–she’s a major talent.”–Lee Child

“Clare Mackintosh has nailed it again. Let Me Lie is an emotional ride with fantastic twists.”—Fiona Barton, New York Times bestselling author of The Child

“Raced through Let Me Lie…inventive, twisting, and perfectly controlled.”—Sarah Vaughan, author of Anatomy of a Scandal

Upcoming Events at Jaffe & Neale Chipping Norton

Thursday 21st September at 6pm, book launch with Nell Darby

Nell Will be here in the shop to celebrate the launch of her new book, Life on the Victorian Stage: Theatrical Gossip.

“The expansion of the press in Victorian Britain meant more pages to be filled, and more stories to be found. Life on the Victorian Stage: Theatrical Gossip looks at how the everyday lives of Victorian performers and managers were used for such a purpose, with the British newspapers covering the good, the bad and the ugly side of life on the stage during the nineteenth century. Viewed through the prism of Victorian newspapers, and in particular through their gossip columns, this book looks at the perils facing actors from financial disasters or insecurity to stalking, from libel cases to criminal trials and offers an alternative view of the Victorian theatrical profession.”

The event will not be ticketed and is free to attend. We look forward to seeing you.

Wednesday 18th October, an evening with Rosamund Young, author of The Secret Life of Cows

“Cows are as varied as people. They can be highly intelligent or slow to understand, vain, considerate, proud, shy or inventive.Although much of a cow’s day is spent eating, they always find time for extra-curricular activities such as babysitting, playing hide and seek, blackberry-picking or fighting a tree.This is an affectionate record of a hitherto secret world.”

Rosamund will be joining us in the shop to talk about her work, as well as her book, The Secret Life of Cows. The time is still to be determined, so keep an eye of the website, or ask in store for more information closer to the time.
