After the huge success of her latest book ‘The Little Stranger’, it appears that all 5 of the novels are also star productions of the small screen …
‘Tipping the Velvet’ and ‘Fingersmith’ have both been adapted for BBC television, with the adaptation of ‘Fingersmith‘ being nominated for a BAFTA. ‘Affinity’ has been adapted for ITV, whilst ‘The Night Watch‘ is currently in development with BBC2. Film rights in ‘The Little Stranger‘ have already been optioned by Potboiler Productions.
Not surprising therefore, that Sarah is taking a well deserved break from writing, spending much of 2011 travelling to promote her books, although she already has an idea for her next story, simmering away in the background …
I have so far only managed to read one of the stories ‘Affinity’, which I thoroughly enjoyed, click here to read my thoughts about the book.
