Salley Vickers

Born in Liverpool, novelist Salley Vickers was named, by her father, after W.B. Yeats’ poem ‘Down by the Salley Gardens’. Vickers worked, variously, as a cleaner, a dancer, an artist’s model, and a psychoanalyst before writing her first novel Miss Garnet’s Angel which became a word-of-mouth bestseller around the world. A writer of great sensitivity and ability to capture the human condition, Vickers was described by one reviewer as ‘a novelist in the great English tradition of moral seriousness’. Her novels include: Instances of the Number 3, Mr Golightly’s Holiday, The Cleaner of Chartres and Cousins.

A tender and delicate novel rich in empathy and understanding, Grandmothers intertwines the stories of a trio of finely drawn pensioners to create a rounded picture of cross-generational bonds and relationships. Written with Vickers’ customary generosity of spirit and nuanced compassion, this is a beautiful elegy for the complexities of old age.
