Bethan Roberts

Bethan Roberts’ much anticipated new novel MY POLICEMAN is published on 2nd February by Chatto & Windus. Inspired by the life of E.M. Forster and his relationship with his long-time companion Bob Buckingham and his wife, but transposed to late 1950s Brighton, My Policeman unfolds through the dual narratives of Marion and Patrick, both writing about the man at the centre of their lives. This beautifully-told, painful, tragic story is a tale of wasted years, misguided love and thwarted hope, of how at a time when the country was on the verge of change so much was still impossible.
