Exeter Fellow Julie Maxwell’s new novel to be published in August
Exeter’s Dr Julie Maxwell, a Fellow in English, will publish her second novel, These Are Our Children, in August with Quercus Books.
One in five confirmed pregnancies end in miscarriage. One in ten babies will spend time in a neonatal unit. These sensitive subjects form the heart of Julie Maxwell’s new novel.
Craig Raine described the forthcoming novel as “A remarkable book … elegantly written, intricately and plausibly plotted with some stunning surprises.”
Dr Maxwell’s first novel, You Can Live Forever, was published in 2007; it won a Betty Trask Award and was Book of the Month on BBC Radio Five Live.

Dr Maxwell will be speaking on a writers’ panel with Nicholas Shakespeare and Amy Sackville (2002, English Studies) at the humanities symposium in February 2014.
