Julia Rochester’s first novel, The House at the Edge of the World, was longlisted for the Baileys Prize for Fiction and the Desmond Elliott Prize.

“[The House at the Edge of the World] grips, and its strength lies in the understanding of human behaviour that underlies the unexpected twists and turns.”
Diana Athill

“Enchanting and disturbing by turns, intriguing right to the end, this is a terrific debut.”
The Times

“Intricate and involving, with vivid passages of natural description — this is a writer to watch.”
The Daily Mail

The House at the Edge of the World, published by Viking (Penguin) is now available in paperback.
