Last night Kate Mosse, author of the international best-selling Languedoc Novels, captivated her audience at the Soho Hotel with a preview of The Taxidermist's Daughter (Orion 11th September 2014). Kate effortlessly conjured up the novel's haunting and tumultuous backdrop, the Fishbourne Marshes, where the shadows of past tragedies return every time the waters retreat.
A dazzling array of specially invited guests and followers on Twitter were treated to a wonderfully compelling film by Mark Rusher in which Kate unveiled the opening sequence of her narrative, and spoke of the way in which the story of Constantia Gifford, its hero, emerged from her own deep-rooted connection with the land and seascape.
Each St Mark's Eve the apparitions of villagers destined to die in the coming year rise from the graveyard of the local church. And on this particular April night, as the rain falls and the marshes begin to flood, a woman already lies dead, a young man searches for his missing father, and Connie is haunted by a girl with a yellow ribbon in her hair...
Kate encouraged attendees to take a selfie with the stuffed birds on display, with actress Haydn Gwynne and her charismatic impresario escort Peter Clayton winning a prize crafted by ethical taxidermist Jazmine Miles-Long. Other entrants included the Orion team, novelist and screenwriter Anthony Horowitz, director of Liberty Shami Chakrabati, writer, broadcaster and comedian Sandi Toksvig and LAW's own Mark Lucas and Araminta Whitley. Further selfies are encouraged, so join in with the #taxidermyselfie.
