It’s always nice to receive an unexpected parcel. One arrived from the publisher shortly before Christmas, containing a couple of copies of The Red Virgin, in Turkish. We’d already seen the Turkish edition of Dotter of her Father’s Eyes (it came out in late 2017) but it was a surprise to see details inside about Sally Heathcote Suffragette too. Obviously we knew it was in the pipeline, but not that it had been out for over a year.
There’s a clever little video promoting it, animating Kate Charlesworth’s artwork (though embarrassing that her name’s not on the cover…)
