‘Perfect’ Lena Dunham ‘This year’s literary sensation’ Evening Standard
How far would you travel to become a writer?
8000 miles from home
1085 calories a day
3 months to write the novel that would make her name
At least that was the plan. But when Nell Stevens travelled to Bleaker Island in the Falklands (official population: two) she didn’t count on the isolation getting to her . . .
Hilarious and heartbreaking, this is a book about loneliness and creativity. It is about discovering who you are when there’s no one else around. And it’s about what to do when a plan doesn’t work: ultimately Nell may have failed to write a novel, but she succeeded in becoming a writer.
