Author Chat: Coco Mellors (Cleopatra and Frankenstein)

Bibliochat: Author Interview

We get so much joy from this page from sharing the books we’ve loved with you. There’s little we love more, though, than having the chance to speak to authors themselves particularly those who’ve written books that we’ve both come away from having absolutely adored. So today, we are beyond thrilled to share with you our IGTV chat with the simply wonderful @cocomellors , the author behind the sublime Cleopatra and Frankenstein. Fans of Evelyn Hugo, Sex and the City, Sally Rooney unite – this one is for you!

A fellow North London girl, a writer of incredible talent and resilience, she gave us a VERY exciting update and talked to us about her writing process, her future plans for her characters and her somewhat rocky road to publication. We loved every minute and genuinely could have carried on for much longer (we did, in fact, once the zoom recording stopped rolling!) huge thanks to Coco for joining us and if you haven’t got your hands on this magical debut, we suggest you do so. Actually, we demand it.

Thank you so much to our pals at @4thestatebooks for sending us copies of the book and raising this title with us!
