Thrilled to be chairing this online event for Portobello Bookshop in Edinburgh.

In this, her debut, Hyde draws on both family mythology and her father’s personal archive to re-imagine his story.

The novel has already been selected as a BBC Radio 4 Book at Bedtime and Editor’s Choice in the Bookseller.

The event is online. Tickets are available here and vary from free for the livestream, to £12.99 for the livestream plus an exclusive signed hardback edition of Violets.
