RECOMMENDED BY THE WALTER SCOTT PRIZE FOR HISTORICAL FICTION 2018
Meike's 5th novel, Flotsam, will be published in May 2019
‘Meike Ziervogel is becoming one of the most interesting figures in the contemporary British and European world, not just because she is a publisher of imagination and daring, but a writer of grace, forensic precision, and power. Rarely has someone given so much from sheer enthusiasm, and talent, and been so worth watching.’
Nicholas Lezard, GUARDIAN critic
