H.S Cross is the author of Wilberforce, published by Farrar, Straus & Giroux. The wilberforceHuffington Post said of it: “For fans of Evelyn Waugh or Kingsley Amis, a wry take on priggish, midcentury boarding schools.

I was fortunate to spend a month with Heather during our shared Hawthornden Fellowships. She is hard at work finishing her second novel, which will also be published by FSG.
