About the Author

Cressida Connolly was born in 1960. She is a journalist and reviewer. She lives in Worcestershire with her husband and three children.


`A writer who seems able to peer directly into the human heart, to understand its follies and strivings, and to write about them with such sparkling originality that it makes you see the world afresh ... I strongly suggest Spectator readers buy two copies - one to savour, and one to throw at the Man Booker judges who unaccountably left it off this year's longlist.' John Preston, Spectator

`"Good" doesn't begin to do justice to the beautiful work of art she has produced...There is a deep satisfaction to the novel, a sense of cool, calm rightness flowing through the world' Elena Seymenliska, Daily Telegraph

`A deceptively quiet novel, it projects the resonant inner lives of its characters without the aid of plot histrionics or high drama. Yet it packs a huge emotional punch, dramatising grief and stoicism in an utterly convincing manner' Elizabeth Buchan, Sunday Times

`An admirable debut' Daily Mail

`Cressida Connolly's atmospheric first novel. [She was] applauded for her economy of prose in her earlier collection of short stories, The Happiest Days. Similarly in My Former Heart, she can evoke the sensibility of childhood in half a sentence' Evening Standard
