An Evening with Jessica Andrews

We absolutely loved Jessica Andrew's debut novel Saltwater and are thrilled that she'll be joining us to talk about her brand new one Milk Teeth on publication in July. It is the book for the Summer months - sticky, heady, lush, sexy ...

Milk Teeth is an intimate love story that explores how to take up space in the world, and why we deny ourselves good things.
