Zadie Smith returns with her first historical novel. Espensen Spirit pairs it with our Chapterhouse Gin
Small City Bookshop says "This is Zadie Smith at her best, in a novel that combines her immersive style of writing, in a tale of literary London and the horrors of slavery. One to get lost in over Christmas."
Penguin Books says 'Truth and fiction. Jamaica and Britain. Who gets to tell their story? Based on real historical events, The Fraud is a dazzling novel about how in a world of hypocrisy and self-deception, deciding what's true can prove a complicated task.'
Sam Espensen says "We have paired this with our Chapterhouse Gin, made in collaboration with Bristol Cathedral. The Cathedral put on an exhibition in 2022 exploring the church's links to the slave trade and is keen to not shy away from the subject."
A 5cl bottle is included in this pairing, so full price for book & booze is £24.99.
