Described by Margaret Atwood as ‘ Wide Sargasso Sea meets Beloved meets Alias Grace ’, Sara Collins’ The Confessions of Frannie Langton is a vibrant reinvention of the gothic novel and a fresh take on the Jane Eyre/Mr Rochester dynamic. Katie Hale’s My Name is Monster draws upon Robinson Crusoe and Frankenstein to explore the strength and the danger of a mother’s love in a post-apocalyptic world. They talk to Caroline Sanderson about their bold reimaginings of classic works.
