Virginia Feito talks to Xiaolu Guo

Debut Discoveries: Mrs March

– Hwyl Stage

George March’s dutiful wife relishes the lifestyle his latest smash hit novel brings, until a shopkeeper assumes that the protagonist in his new book – a sex worker who is more a figure of derision than desire – is based on Mrs March. The casual remark robs Mrs March of the belief that she knew everything about her husband, and sends her on an increasingly paranoid journey…one that starts within the pages of a book but may very well uncover both a killer and the long-buried secrets of Mrs March’s past. In conversation with Xiaolu Guo (author of Radical: A Life of my own), Virginia Feito discusses her razor-sharp exploration of the fragility of identity and the smothering weight of expectations.
