This Autumn, we warmly welcome back Margaret Drabble, one of our country’s foremost writers, with her new book The Pure Gold Baby. A novel of ‘great beauty, wisdom and stealthy power’ (Canongate editor Anya Serota) The Pure Gold Baby follows the life of a delightfully sunny child, Anna, born in 1960s London to a young anthropology student. Presenting profound challenges to her unorthodox parents, but with special, unknowable qualities, Anna comes to touch the lives and loves of those around her. With subtle, yet scalpel-sharp, precision Drabble examines the ways in which attitudes to children and disability have changed over the decades
