Meike Ziervogel will discuss her latest novella, Clara’s Daughter (Salt Publishing). Michele is a successful businesswoman with a troubled private life. She has a high-powered job, a family, a husband, yet she is defined by a term of possession: she is ‘Clara’s daughter’. When Michele moves her mother into the basement, her husband slams the door and disappears into the night. Devastating in its psychological insights, Clara’s Daughter reveals unnerving truths about relationships in this startling, cinematic novella.
