Eleanor Anstruther’s debut novel A PERFECT EXPLANATION acquired by Salt Publishing

27th June, 2018

We’re thrilled to announce the acquisition by Salt Publishing of Eleanor Anstruther’s debut novel A Perfect Explanation.

Described as a “monumental tale of family dysfunction”, A Perfect Explanation is set in the early to mid-Twentieth Century and is based on the true story of Enid Campbell, the author’s grandmother.

Jen Hamilton-Emery, Publisher at Salt, said of A Perfect Explanation: “It is rare to be delighted, disturbed and dismayed within the course of one exquisite sentence…No reader will be left untouched. It is, quite simply, majestic.”

Salt acquired UK and Commonwealth rights from Jenny Savill at Andrew Nurnberg Associates
