Emma Cline

‘I don't know which is more amazing, Emma Cline's understanding of human beings or her mastery of language.’ Mark Haddon

Last year Emma Cline exploded onto the literary scene with her first novel, The Girls. Inspired by the Manson Murders, The Girls explores the world of cults and communes in 1960s California — a world that seduces the 14 year-old heroine Evie and changes her life forever. Hailed as a master of fresh, startling, luminous prose, Emma Cline talks about her work and the novel that has placed her at the forefront of American literature.
