He’s one of the country’s most top booksellers but John Purcell has also led a double life, surprising the publishing world when he was unmasked as the author of erotic fiction he’d written under a female pseudonym. Now in his hotly anticipated new novel, The Girl On the Page, he’s written a provocative contemporary fable of betrayal, ambition and lust set in the world of publishing, laced with insider intel. Will it ever forgive him?
