On her latest novel 'The Coral Thief'.

Rebecca Stott is a Professor of English Literature and Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia, and a freelance writer and broadcaster.

Set in Paris in 1815, Rebecca describes it as the story of a bunch of philosophical thieves who are trying to break into a museum - a kind of Ocean’s Eleven meets Rousseau’s Confessions.

The Coral Thief is published by by Weidenfeld and Nicolson, ISBN 978-0-297-85137-0.
