My guest today is Jessie Burton, the author of the Sunday Times bestselling novels The Miniaturist (which sold over a million copies in its first year of publication), The Muse, and The Confession, the children's book The Restless Girls and the modern feminist retelling of Medusa which is out now. Her novels have been translated into 38 languages, and she is a regular essay writer for newspapers and magazines and she is one of my favourite authors to follow on Instagram, for her writing advice, colourful interiors (and pictures of her cat of course)

We discuss her bringing alive Medusa for a new generation, her wonderful novels, her relationship with success and social media and so much more. I absolutely loved this conversation and hope you do too!
