Jane Rusbridge, whose story “Ship of Dreams” appears in Riptide Vol 5, has recently announced that her second novel, ‘Rook’, will be published by Bloomsbury in August 2012. Like “Ship of Dreams” and her first novel, ‘The Devil’s Music’ (long-listed for the International Impac Dublin Literary Award 2011), Rook is set on the West Sussex coastline near where Rusbridge currently lives. Weaving together the hidden histories of the Bayeux Tapestry, the truth behind King Cnut’s illegitimate daughter, shameful family secrets and a half-dead baby rook found in a ditch, this novel promises to create a beautiful and delicate tapestry in its own right. More information can be found on Jane’s own website.
