Book your place for this talk on Wednesday 25 March with Writer in Residence Julia Crouch at West Dean College of Arts and Conservation.
Julia Crouch is the best-selling author of five internationally-published novels: Cuckoo, Every Vow You Break, Tarnished, The Long Fall and Her Husband's Lover.
While her books broadly fall under the crime fiction/psychological thriller umbrella, she coined the term Domestic Noir to more accurately describe their particular concentration on what she calls 'the terrible things we do to one another in the name of love'. The term has caught on, and she has appeared at academic conferences to talk about it, as well as contributing to an academic book on the subject. Two of her novels are currently in development for TV/film adaptations.
In a previous career (and under a different name) she created twelve plays, devising some with her theatre company, Public Parts, and writing others for external productions. She writes short stories, which have appeared in several collections and publications, and her articles and features have been published in major newspapers and magazines.
