Christopher’s previous book, The Elephant Keeper, was shortlisted for the Costa Novel Award and the Encore Award.

A serial adaptation was broadcast as a BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week.

Born in London and educated in Tunbridge Wells and Cambridge University, Christopher now lives on the Dorset and Wiltshire border.

He will sign copies of his novel at the event on Thursday, September 18.
