We’re pleased to announce that Gaye Poole has signed with us for her debut women’s fiction The Edges of Me, in which glass-brimming psychiatric nurse, Jenny, and her new patient, glass-definitely-half-empty physiotherapist, Claire, develop a lifelong and fateful co-dependent friendship, that is scarred by secrets and untimely ends. Perfect for fans of Gail Honeyman, Rachel Joyce and Emma Donohue.
Stephanie Butland, author of Lost for Words says:
“This novel, about a friendship between two people who have their separate and shared struggles, is like nothing I’ve read before. It rings very true and I think readers will find it compelling.”
Before turning to novel writing, Poole wrote eight professionally produced plays which received high praise:
“Wonderful showing of new play by Gaye Poole. Brilliant theatrical example of gripping storytelling. In this case the human story of middle class drinking… But above all a triumph of new writing” – Michael Billington, former Guardian Arts Critic
“I was really moved by DRY. It is a stunning piece of theatre, both in the writing… should be seen nationwide. It’s also a most effective marriage of theatre and therapy.” – Joanna Trollope, Author
Look out for Edges of Me online and in your local bookstore next year!
