The Essex Serpent is Sarah Perry's second novel, following her acclaimed debut, After Me Comes the Flood. Set in the 1880s in the Essex marshes, a widow and her son hunt a serpent, believed by some to be magical, others merely a superstition and some a symptom of moral panic. Already a Sunday Times bestseller, this magnificent concoction weaves the rich detail of Victorian life with a love story and themes of evolution. Here to chat to Sarah about the book is MJ Carter, who has written a trio of hugely enjoyable Victorian novels featuring the detective duo Avery and Blake. The third instalment, The Devil's Feast, is released in October. 'The Essex Serpent is a novel to relish: a work of great intelligence and charm, by a hugely talented author' Sarah Waters
