We’re thrilled to welcome internationally bestselling author Jeanette Winterson to introduce her new book, Night Side of the River. A masterful collection of modern ghost stories based on the author’s real-life encounters with the occult, it explores how our lives have changed but our ghosts have not. How we know everything about our world… but nothing about theirs.

Jeanette Winterson CBE was born in Manchester. Her first novel, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, was published to critical acclaim when she was twenty-five. Winterson has since published thirteen novels, two story collections, children’s books and more, including bestselling memoir Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?
