From the award-winning author of The Observations comes a
beautifully conjured and wickedly sharp tale of art and deception
in nineteenth-century Scotland.
As she sits in her Bloomsbury home with her two pet birds for
company, elderly Harriet Baxter recounts the story of her
friendship with Ned Gillespie--a talented artist whose life came to
a tragic end before he ever achieved the fame and recognition that
Harriet maintains he deserved.
In 1888, young Harriet arrives in Glasgow during the
International Exhibition. After a chance encounter with Ned, she
befriends the Gillespie family and soon becomes a fixture in their
lives. But when tragedy strikes, culminating in a notorious
criminal trial, the certainty of Harriet's new world rapidly
spirals into suspicion and despair.
Infused with rich period detail, shot through with sly humor,
and featuring a memorable cast of characters, Gillespie and I is an
absorbing, atmospheric tale of one young woman's friendship with a
volatile artist and her place in the controversy that consumes
him--a tour de force from one of the emerging names of modern
