Exeter Fellow Julie Maxwell’s novel released in paperback

The second novel by Exeter’s Dr Julie Maxwell, Fellow in English, was released in paperback last week. These Are Our Children was publised in paperback by Quercus Books on 6 March.

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 novel.

Craig Raine described the 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.
