SUSTAINING A LONG CAREER
MAGGIE GEE interviewed by BERNARDINE EVARISTO

Blood (2019), is set in anarchic modern times where terrorism has become routine. The novel asks serious questions about contemporary life: what can we do with the monstrous men who bully women and the weak? Can we wait for a world of order and justice? If we hit back, can the circle of violence ever be broken?

Maggie Gee has written 15 books to great acclaim, and her work has been translated into 14 languages. One of Granta’s original ‘Best of Young British Novelists’, Maggie Gee has been shortlisted for global prizes including the Orange (now Women’s) Prize, and the Dublin International IMPAC Prize. She is a Professor of Creative Writing at Bath Spa University, a Director of the Authors’ Licensing and Collecting Society and a Vice-President of the Royal Society of Literature.
