At least that was the plan. But when Nell Stevens travelled to Bleaker Island in the Falklands (official population: two) she didn’t count on the isolation getting to her . . .
Hilarious and heartbreaking, this is a book about loneliness and creativity. It is about discovering who you are when there’s no one else around. And it’s about what to do when a plan doesn’t work: ultimately Nell may have failed to write a novel, but she succeeded in becoming a writer.
Part memoir, part travelogue, Bleaker House is a hilarious, heartwarming book about the lessons Nell Stevens learnt whilst becoming a writer.
Nell Stevens, author of Bleaker House, on why her next book - publishing in 2018 - will be a love letter dedicated to her 'own very special, dear friend', Elizabeth Gaskell.
