The Open Page with… Joanna Cannon 

Join Sunday Times Bestselling author Joanna Cannon with Trinity regular and host of the Bestseller Experiment Podcast, Mark Stay as they talk about her life and work. Joanna made waves with her first book The Trouble with Goats and Sheep which was longlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize. Her next novel, Three Things About Elsie was longlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction. Joanna left school with just one O-Level but returned to education in her thirties and eventually qualified as a doctor. After the event, Joanna will be signing copies of her new book A Tidy Ending which is released on April 28th



Linda has lived around here ever since she fled the dark events of her childhood in Wales. Now she sits in her kitchen, wondering if this is all there is – pushing the Hoover round and cooking fish fingers for tea is a far cry from the glamorous lifestyle she sees in the glossy catalogues coming through the door for the house’s previous occupant.


Terry isn’t perfect – he picks his teeth, tracks dirt through the house and spends most of his time in front of the TV. But that seems fairly standard – until he starts keeping odd hours at work, at around the same time young women start to go missing in the neighbourhood.


If Linda could just track down Rebecca, who lived in the house before them, maybe some of that perfection would rub off on her. But the grass isn’t always greener: you can’t change who you really are, and there’s something nasty lurking behind the net curtains on Cavendish Avenue…

‘Cannon is so attuned to other people’s stories… a chronicler both of the human condition and the quotidian details which speak to who we are’ Guardian

‘Original, macabre and the reveal of the twist made me laugh with shock and delight. Never less than intriguing, it had me holding my breath!’ Marian Keyes
