I am involved in running the Elthamread, an initiative aimed at encouraging people living in SE9 to read the same book each year in October and come together to talk about it. The chosen book for 2016 was The Swimming Pool by Louise Candlish. The new book for 2017 is London Lies Beneath by Stella Duffy. For information see www.elthamread.co.uk.
The Mesmerist is published in paperback.
