Here at Mr B’s, we love nothing more than discovering fantastic new literary voices and introducing them to you – and this Autumn we have a real gem in store!
Based on a true story, Lara Prescott’s ‘The Secrets we Kept’ reimagines the extraordinary tale of two secretaries, pulled from the CIA typing pool and tasked with a mission to smuggle Boris Pasternak’s ‘Dr Zhivago’ out of the USSR and into print around the world. Set during the height of the Cold War, this meticulously-researched debut novel captures a time, a place and a watershed moment in history with thrilling drama, forbidden love and an astonishing sense of narrative mastery.
‘The Secrets we Kept’ is already destined for big things: Hollywood big-wigs have snapped up the rights to create a blockbuster film (with the producers of ‘La La Land’), foreign rights have sold in 28 countries and Mr B’s Kate and Lottie are big fans!
Before the masses embrace its greatness, join us at Mr B’s as we chat to Texan writer Lara about her sensational debut and how books have the power to change the world!
