Polly Courtney Book and Novel

Polly Courtney - Author


The publication of Polly Courtney's debut novel Golden Handcuffs, a fictional exposé of her career in the Square Mile, earned Polly acclaim in the Observer, The Times, Sunday Times, Independent, Guardian, Daily Express, Daily Mail, Evening Standard and many other publications. Her second novel, Poles Apart, came out in 2008 and is an eye-opening depiction of life as a young migrant in England today. The Day I Died came out in 2009 and tells the tale of a young woman struggling with her own identity in the aftermath of an explosion. Aside from writing, Polly plays in a semi-proffesional string quartet, No Strings Attached, which inspired the all-girl band in The Fame Factor. She has a Masters degree from Cambridge and now lives in London.
