Faber & Faber - Ronald Frame introduces Havisham
Ronald Frame introduces Havisham
Ronald's new novel, published this November, is Havisham, which tells the story of one of Dickens' best-known characters from her own point of view. We know her from Great Expectations as the unhappy bride jilted at the last moment, still wearing her wedding dress years amid the ruins of her wedding breakfast, but how did she come to that state? What was she like as a young woman, when she was the daughter of a wealthy brewer with the world seemingly at her feet?
In this short interview, Ronald Frame talks about his novel and his fascination for the character who inspired it.
