The Scots Magazine - - Wild About Scotland -

Sept 22, 12pm

Imo­gen Her­mes Gowar may have just be­gun her lit­er­ary ca­reer, but that hasn’t stopped her from re­ceiv­ing the kind of ac­claim other writ­ers dream of. The Mer­maid And Mrs Han­cock, set in Ge­or­gian Lon­don, was sold to Harvill Secker in a 10-way auc­tion and has been dubbed by the press as the most hyped book of this year. Join Imo­gen, as she dis­cusses the in­spi­ra­tion be­hind this en­chant­ing his­tor­i­cal tale of mer­maids, sailors and cour­te­sans.
