Clare Fisher (2006, History) publishes debut novel
Clare Fisher (2006, History) has published her debut novel, All the Good Things. It tells the story of Beth, a 21-year-old woman in prison for having done something terrible – something so bad that she can’t believe she deserves ever to feel good again. With the help of her counsellor, Beth starts to build up a list of all the good things in her life. But no matter how much good there may be, the bad thing still lingers.
All the Good Things was published by Viking in May 2017. It has received glowing reviews since its release, and is available to buy online and from most book shops.
In August 2017 a collection of short stories by Miss Fisher will be published by Influx Press. How The Light Gets In explores the spaces between light and dark and how we find our way from one to the other. From buffering Skype chats and the truth about beards, to fried chicken shops and the things smartphones make you less likely to do when alone in a public place, Miss Fisher paints a complex, funny and moving portrait of contemporary British life.
