"Gillies writes magnificently on everything she touches" -- Sunday Times
Andrea Gillies is the author of the novel THE WHITE LIE, and the non-fiction book KEEPER, which won the inaugural Wellcome Book Prize 2009 and the Orwell Book Prize 2010.
KEEPER is an unusual book about Alzheimer's disease, a mix of diary, amateur neurology and a meditation on the links between memory and identity.
THE WHITE LIE was published in February 2012, to critical acclaim. It concerns a Scottish aristocratic family who, convinced that one of their own has murdered another of them, decide never to tell, and the devastating consequences of unaddressed guilt.
She is now writing a second novel, a love triangle of sorts, which will appear in 2013.
