Dinah Jefferies THE SEPARATION Author of the Week
Resourceful Dinah Jeffries drew upon her early childhood memories of the last gasp of Colonial Malaya as the setting of her first novel The Separation. She was able to relive the past with her mother through old photographs but also drew on a tragic experience of her own as a mother. She tells Donna about starting over and her recent return to the UK from Spain as well as her next novel. She will be speaking at Waterstone’s bookshop in London’s Richmond on the evening of June 5th.
