Join us for an evening with acclaimed writer Sophie Mackintosh where she will be talking about her third novel Cursed Bread.

Spring, 1951. Four people meet in a small French town: the baker and his wife; the ambassador and his wife. Two belong to the town, two are outsiders. Some time later, strange things start happening. Horses drop dead in the fields. Children grow wild and unbiddable. Ghosts are sighted after dark. Someone is playing a dangerous game of cat and mouse – but who is the predator and who is the prey?

‘Sensual, luminous, transcendent … this tale of obsession, desire and betrayal has a timeless, dreamlike quality. It confirms Mackintosh as one of our finest young writers.’ Bookseller
