Author of the Month: Sarah Moss
Selected by the Bookshop
Our Author of the Month for May is the novelist, essayist and literary critic Sarah Moss, currently Assistant Professor of Creative Writing at the University College Dublin.
Sarah Moss was born in Glasgow and brought up in Manchester, and the north often features in her work. Following the publication of her first novel Cold Earth, set in Greenland, she spent a year teaching at the University of Iceland, an experience described in her memoir Names for the Sea. Her latest novel The Fell, a suspenseful tale of lockdown in the Peak District, is one of the finest pieces of writing to have emerged from the pandemic.
