Bitter Orange is Published in the UK



My third novel, Bitter Orange was published in the UK last week. It was a crazy and exciting week, with a launch in London at Waterstones Covent Garden (they have lots of signed copies), and another in my home town of Winchester. I also went on a walk around London signing copies in other bookshops including Daunts, Heywood Hill, and Hatchards. It was hot! DSCF9056

The book has been getting great reviews:

“Fuller is an accomplished and serious writer who has the ability to implant interesting psychological dimensions into plotty, pacy narratives.” The Observer

“It is rare for me to put down a novel and then immediately consider rereading it to see what cleverness I might have missed. This time, though, I am tempted.” The Sunday Times

“Fuller is a master at summoning the atmosphere of a heady, hot summer, that thrums with tension.” Stylist Magazine

  1. Hi Claire i have never felt the need to leave comments after reading books as I always let my book worm friends & family know what i have enjoyed. I read bitter orange last week could not put it down was late for work one morning & stayed up late over the bank holiday as I just had to know what happened to everyone! Then felt I had not had enough of your fantastic discriptive text that I had been emersed in so this weekend I have read swimming lessons. What an amazing talent you have Claire. Looking forward to reading another. Regards Jane pursey


    • Hello Jane, Thank you so much. I’m delighted that you enjoyed Bitter Orange, and now Swimming Lessons. This is exactly what every author likes to hear. I hope you also enjoy Our Endless Numbered Days if you get to it – quite different from the other two, I think. Best wishes, Claire
