John Purcell chats to Dani Vee about his brilliant new novel The Girl On The Page. We chat about integrity, genius, literature, sex, filthy manuscripts and complex characters that draw you into the novel.
Described as 'a smart, sexy, provocative and powerful novel of ambition, betrayal and redemption, The Girl On The Page follows the story of 'hard-drinking, bed-hopping, hot-shot young book editor' Amy Winston 'on a downward spiral'.
Published Catherine Milne said: 'The joy of this novel isn't just that it's a complete page-turner, with lashings of sex, glamour, bad behaviour and wonderfully wicked insider publishing references, but that at its heart The Girl On The Page is a deeply serious and intelligent novel about the power of literature, which asks searching questions about art and commerce, integrity and authenticity.'
