About The Author

Gill HornbyGill Hornby is a writer and journalist. She lives with her husband, Robert Harris, and their four children in Kintbury, Berkshire. The Hive is her first novel. Film rights have been sold to Focus Features. It follows the friendships and feuds of a group of women who meet at the school gate each day. Over the course of a school year - and under the guise of the school's charity committee - they scheme, support, compete and jostle for position in their unspoken but fiercely run hierarchy. From the joys and perils (well, mainly perils) of the Lunch Ladder; to the military operation that is the Car Boot Sale; to the creation of a vaguely convincing Dalek costume for a small child, all human life is here... The result is an astonishingly accomplished debut novel - wise, touching and very, very funny. You can read the first chapter here.

Once upon a time in the west
15/04/2014

While Westerns remain popular in America, they have largely fallen out of favour with British readers. This is a great pity, suggests Joshua from our Waterloo branch, as they are missing out on some wonderful fiction, both classic and contemporary.
