Author Imogen Hermes Gowar talks about her new novel The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock and the inspiration behind it.

A former British Museum employee, Imogen was inspired to write her first novel by the merman in the Enlightenment Gallery. It started a bidding war between rival publishers, and was longlisted for The Women’s Prize for Fiction and the Desmond Elliott Prize. It is a spellbinding story of curiosity and obsession – an unforgettable jewel of a novel, filled to the brim with intelligence, heart and wit.

Includes a complimentary drink.
