Don’t miss Esther Freud, daughter of the artist Lucian Freud and
great-granddaughter of Sigmund Freud. Her first book, Hideous
Kinky, about two small girls and their bohemian mother in Morocco, was based
on her own nomadic childhood (and made into an amazing film with Kate
Winslet). Her latest book, The Sea House, darts between past
and present: an architect, his wife, and a German refugee in 1953, and a
young woman 50 years later, piecing their letters and lives back together.
Freud’s other novels include Peerless Flats, Summer at Gaglow, and The Wild.
In 1993, she was selected by Granta as one of the 20 Best Young British
