Clara & Olivia

Published by: Magpie (Oneworld Publications)

Judges’ Comments
This is a novel about female identity and relationships among women; it’s a novel of social aspirations in a world that is changing rapidly and offers new opportunities to many. Written as gracefully as its protagonists dance, Clara & Olivia takes us into the world of the new English ballet and the industries that grew up to support it.
