Trollope is an extremely assured writer, with a brilliant eye for detail and a finely tuned emotional intelligence. – Sunday Times
One of the greatest joys we can experience as readers is engaging with an author who truly understands the world in which we live. Bestselling author Joanna Trollope is a writer of extraordinary sensitivity and style, and her new book City of Friends demonstrates both these qualities to their fullest.
City of Friends is Joanna’s twentieth book, and it is a suitably exceptional work with which to mark this milestone. Charting the lives of four friends from their University days through into adulthood, the novel tackles the issue of how our lives rarely travel in the direction we intended, and how we are all affected by the trials and heartbreaks of those closest to us. A poignant and timely work exploring concepts of identity, self-worth, and friendship, City of Friends is an impeccably detailed and nuanced account of just what it means to travel through life alongside those we love.
We are delighted to welcome an author of Joanna’s stature and talent to the bookshop. An evening spent with such a beloved and respected voice of contemporary fiction is not one to be missed!
