She is one of the UK’s best-loved novelists and her books have sold more than 10m copies around the world. And, in May this year, SA will play host to Lesley Pearse.
Pearse will be in the country to promote the paperback release of her latest book, Dead to Me. Published by Penguin Random House, the novel is about two girls — one poor and other rich — who become firm friends. But can the friendship survive when the roles are reversed?
Pearse often uses the pain and unhappiness of her early childhood in her storytelling.
She will be hosted at a series of events in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town.
