Since writing her first novel while studying for her A-Levels, Helen Oyeyemi has grown to be one of the UK’s most exciting writers. Now listed by New York Times Style Magazine as one of the world’s most talented twenty-somethings, this month Helen releases her fourth novel, Boy, Snow, Bird: a moving tale set in 1950s Maccachussets that plays on Snow White’s ‘fairest of them all’ concept. A story of family secrets, race, and vanity, Helen’s fourth novel is testament to her renowned wit and bold imagination – and due Tuesday 27 February. If you can’t wait until then, get ahead of the rush and witness her dynamic storytelling in person as she launches Boy, Snow, Bird with an exclusive reading and signing on the eve of its release.
