Jenny Eclair
Novel Laughter

We’re thrilled to welcome one of the UK’s most popular performers –writer, comedian and TV personality Jenny Eclair. Picked for the Richard and Judy Book Club for her bestselling third novel, Moving, Eclair was also the first woman to win the prestigious Perrier Award (and in her own words, ‘hasn’t stopped banging on about it ever since’). Her inimitable wit and observational humour shine through her latest novel, Inheritance, a poignant examination of tragedy and turmoil across generations. Expect liberal helpings of both laughter and tears.
