The Matter of Memory due in spring 2020
Josephine Greywoode, editorial director at Penguin Press, has won a six-way auction to sign UK and Commonwealth rights in The Matter of Memory by Veronica O'Keane. The agent is Bill Hamilton at AM Heath.
O'Keane is professor of psychiatry and consultant psychiatrist at Trinity College Dublin, and in her book (spring 2020) she shows how memories make us and how when things go wrong the abnormal experiences are hardwired into real memories, whether they happened or not. The Matter of Memory draws on case studies as well as examples from literature, film and fairy tales.
