Paul Torday’s final novel published

Today W&N published Paul Torday’s final book, The Death of an Owl, completed after Paul’s death by his son Piers Torday, an award winning children’s writer in his own right. Tipped by Vogue as a “must read” of 2016, the novel tells the story of an ambitious politician, Andrew Landford, who runs over a protected owl by mistake, and the consequences that unfold when he tries to cover it up.

Piers tells the remarkable story of how this book came into being, at the W&N blog here.
