Nell Stevens was determined to write a novel, but life at 27 years old can get quite hectic. She was awarded a fellowship that let her spend three months anywhere in the world to research and write a book, with all the expenses paid, of course. With all the places Nell could choose from, you would assume that a snowy and cold isolated house would be one of the last options, but not for Nell. Bleaker Island was a place where she could rid herself from distractions, buckle down and finally write her novel.
When Nell arrives to Bleaker Island, there aren’t many distractions and she finally writes her book, calling it Bleaker House. This memoir follows Nell’s days on the island and the people she has left behind in order to pursue her love of writing.
“Bleaker House is so riveting and so much fun to read, I would have loved it even if it hadn’t also been innovative and brilliant, but it is all those things. Nell Stevens is an excellent writer, and I can’t wait to read every book she writes.” —Kate Christensen, author of The Great Man and Blue Plate Special
Bleaker House captures the hopes and fears of being young and wanting to lead a creative life. This book has a witty and charming approach that will captivate you and keep you hooked.
