Salley Vickers 08 Jul 09
Salley Vickers
On her latest novel

Salley Vickers’ first novel was a ‘word of mouth’ sensation. Just one thousand imprints of Miss Garnet’s Angel were originally published – to date it has sold over a million copies. Salley’s latest novel ‘Dancing Backwards’  is set aboard a cruise ship. It tells the story of Violet, as she travels to New York, to meet an old friend she betrayed years before.  Salley Vickers joins Jenni to discuss her latest book and  why she hates the cult of the author.
Dancing Backwards is published by HarperCollins, ISBN 13: 9780007143146
