About the Author

Gill Fyffe read English at the University of St Andrews and was awarded an MLitt with distinction for a verse biography of Rose de Beauharnais, the empress Josephine. Gill's life has been affected by the consequences of a contaminated blood transfusion. She taught at the University of St Andrews and Fettes College, Edinburgh, before side-effects forced her to resign. She is immensely proud of her son and daughter who, educated at Fettes College, went on to study at Imperial and RADA, Oxford and LARA. Gill now lives in Soho.


'This is a story of medical incompetence, political malfeasance, financial hardship and real long-term horrible suffering. It is also one of the funniest, most buoyant, triumphant books I've read in ages - tragi-comedy at a very high level, delightful and admirable.' Sara Maitland, author of Three Times Table, Gossip Forest and A Book of Silence;'This is a tale of bad luck and its rippling effects, a portrait of a family stretched to its limits by uncertainty and lack of accountability. The misfortune itself is not unheard-of, yet Gill Fyffe's narrative approach is fresh and full of surprises: no heartwarming cliches of love triumphing in adversity, no crusading campaigns. The result is writing that rings bold and true.' Jennie Erdal author of Ghosting and The Missing Shade of Blue
