Sophie Hannah will be visiting The Raven as part of her tour celebrating the US release of new book, "The Dead Lie Down." She is also the author of "Little Face" and "The Wrong Mother." O, the Oprah Magazine, praised "The Wrong Mother" for its "shockingly (and refreshingly) blunt riffs about the violent emotions of motherhood and the familial years of men, along with chilling and darkly funny revelations about lust and loyalty" and named it "one of the season's most absorbing reads." "The Dead Lie Down," another international bestseller, met with ecstatic reviews overseas, where The Guardian declared the book "beautifully written (with) precision engineered to unsettle."
