Award–winning author Ceridwen Dovey’s In the Garden of the Fugitives is a gripping novel about obsession, guilt and the power of the past to possess the present. It follows the story of Vita, who receives an email from her old benefactor, Royce, almost 20 years after she forbade him to contact her. What unfolds is a masterwork of duplicity and counterplay. Previously selected for the US National Book Foundation’s prestigious ‘5 Under 35’ list, Ceridwen discusses her breakthrough new novel. Presented with the State Library of New South Wales.
