Michelle Lovric, who lives in both Southwark and Venice, has set her new novel in the two locations.
Familiar Southwark places mentioned include The Anchor pub, Park Street and Stoney Street. Michelle not only researched local history but was also able to call on advice from the Old Operating Theatre Museum and Herb Garret for the so-called medicines peddled by the leading characters.
Michelle Lovric is the author of two previous novels published by Virago including Carnevale.
