Michèle Roberts is the author of fourteen critically acclaimed novels, including Daughters of the House, which won the WHSmith Literary Award and was shortlisted for the Booker Prize, and Ignorance, which was longlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction and the Impac Award. Her most recent books are her memoir Negative Capability, published last year by Sandstone Press, and her novel Cut Out, published in August.
Cut Out: A lyrical tale of family secrets and self-discovery.
Denis knows his mother kept things from him. His godmother, Clemence, knows the truth. In rich, sensuous prose, Roberts interweaves Denis’s search for answers with Clemence’s memories of the time she spent working for Matisse.
‘Brimming with delights, as full of life and colour as Matisse’s cut outs. Beautifully written with many sharp and original ideas about life and loss and creativity. A novel of deep pleasures.’ Susie Boyt.
