Jessie Burton talks to John Mitchinson


Hay Festival 2022, 

Join the internationally bestselling author of The Miniaturist in conversation with the Unbound publisher about her dazzling, feminist retelling of the Greek myth Medusa. Exiled to a far-flung island by the whims of the gods, Medusa has little company except the snakes that adorn her head instead of hair. But when a charmed, beautiful boy called Perseus arrives on the island, her lonely existence is disrupted with the force of a supernova, unleashing desire, love and betrayal.

YA, 12+ years
