Gill Hornby: ‘The Hive’ May 24th

**Gill Hornby talks about her novel The Hive**

~ Friday May 24th at 7pm ~

We are very excited that just a day after the official publication of ‘The Hive’ we are holding an event with Gill Hornby. This book is the publisher’s most important new author they are launching this year. It’s already causing a stir in the media with the Sunday Times Style Magazine heralding it as the start of a new wave of fiction.

The Hive is an irresistible, brilliantly observed novel.  Wickedly funny, it is also a fascinating and subtle story about group politics and female friendship.  From the joys and perils (well, mainly perils) of the Lunch Ladder, to the military operation that is the Car Boot Sale, via the dos and don’ts of dressing your child as a dalek, all human life is here. This novel is a must for anyone that has children!
