THE WALWORTH BEAUTY – MICHELE ROBERTS

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Don’t Miss... -

From the Booker Prize-short­listed au­thor of Daugh­ters Of The House comes two sto­ries, 160 years apart. In 1851, Joseph Benson is em­ployed by the real-life Henry May­hew to re­search the lives of work­ing peo­ple, which takes him to what seems to be a brothel in Lon­don back street Apricot Place. In 2011, 60-some­thing Madeleine moves into the very same build­ing where she hears noises and foot­steps. A ghost tale with a dual nar­ra­tive. Out now (Blooms­bury, $24.99)
