Nelly Dean is an astonishing novel: written by an expert on 19th century British fiction, it retells the story of Wuthering Heights from the perspective of the Earnshaws’ long suffering servant, the aforementioned Nelly Dean. One of our booksellers (who admits to previously disliking Wuthering Heights!) found it utterly compelling: a completely transformative envisioning of an immensely problematic novel. It’s beautiful on its own merits, but also throws the novel that inspired it into a whole new light. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to listen to Alison Case discuss this extraordinary story.
