Synopsis

The Olive Readers by Christine Aziz

The debut novel from the winner of the Richard & Judy competition to find a bright new author. 'The Olive Readers' is a portrait of a dystopian future and a love story of both courage and redemption. It is a tale of a young woman who writes from the future, telling of a world we would all shiver to inhabit.

About the Author

Christine Aziz, 52, left school at 15 with a single O-level in English. She was born in Yorkshire and has worked as a shop assistant, dental receptionist, factory packer, singer and cleaner. Her only experience of writing was as a news reporter for three years, but she did not like the pressure of journalism. Her manuscript for The Olive Readers was selected from more than 46,000 entries to the Channel 4 teatime show's How to Get Published competition.
