AUTISM AND LITERARY NARRATIVE
Holly Smale will be discussing novels, autism and literary narrative with Viktoria Lloyd-Barlow (author of All the Little Bird-Hearts) and the two authors will be in conversation with Lucy Cotter.
Cassandra Dankworth is a creature of habit. She likes what she likes (museums, jumpsuits,her boyfriend Will) and strongly dislikes what she doesn't (mess, change, her bossdrinkingout of her mug). Her life runs in a pleasing, predictable order. Until now. She's just been dumped. She's just been fired. Her local café has run out of banana muffins.
Then, something truly unexpected happens: Cassie discovers she can go back and change the past. Now, Cassie should be able to find a way to fix the life she accidentally obliterated. And with time on her side, how hard can it be...?
'Sharp, funny, quirky, insightful and so very, very relatable.' Joanne Harris
Holly Smale is the multi-million-copy bestselling author of Geek Girl and this is her hotly-anticipated first novel for adults. This witty, life-affirming book draws on Holly’s own experience of being diagnosed as on the autistic spectrum at the age of 39.
