Strikingly vivid, The Vanishing Futurist, the debut novel by award-winning writer Charlotte Hobson, pierces the heart with a story of fleeting, but infinite possibility. When twenty-two-year-old Gerty Freely travels to Russia to work as a governess in early 1914, she has no idea of the vast political upheavals ahead, nor how completely her fate will be shaped by them.

Charlotte Hobson’s first book, Black Earth City, won a Somerset Maugham Award and was shortlisted for the Duff Cooper Prize and the Thomas Cook Travel Book Award.

Join us for an evening talk in the bookshop with a future star of fiction.
