Riptide writer’s first novel
Vanessa Gebbie’s debut novel The Coward’sTale will be published by Bloomsbury on November 7th. The launch event is going to be at the glorious Daunts bookshop in Marylebone High Street and information about that is available on Vanessa’s own blog. When we published her story ‘Irrigation’ in the first ever volume of Riptide back in 2007, she said she was ‘writing something that looks like a novel.’ And here it now is! In between Salt has published two short story collections by her and here at Riptide we are very pleased to say that a memoir by Vanessa will appear in our forthcoming Devon-themed edition – Volume 7 , due out January 2012.
