Under the Sun

Lottie Moggach has worked as a journalist for 15 years, writing for publications ranging from the Financial Times to Time Out.

“Lottie Moggach’s debut novel, Kiss Me First, a thriller about online identity, was shortlisted for the Guardian first book award. Her second novel, Under the Sun, is an enjoyable slice of summer noir with a wider social perspective. From the prologue, you’d think you were in recognisable territory; then the story opens out into a commentary on the vicissitudes of escapism. Forty-ish Anna lives in southern Spain, an expat haven, at least from the outside. The reality is a bunch of bored, recession-hit Brits desperate to sell up and get out, not that they would admit as much when Skyping their families back home. Anna’s is perhaps the saddest tale of the lot – the man she was building a life with left her suddenly, and the finca (Spanish farmhouse) she poured her life savings into is now falling into disrepair.” – Emma Jane Unsworth in the Guardian.

This event is part of Redbridge Libraries’ Fabula Festival,
supported by Newham Bookshop.
