Abbie Greaves

Abbie Greaves studied at Cambridge University before working in a literary agency for a number of years.

She was inspired to write her first novel, The Silent Treatment, after reading a newspaper article about a boy in Japan who had never seen his parents speak to one another before.

Abbie lives in Edinburgh with her boyfriend and is hard at work on her follow-up novel, The Ends of the Earth.



The Silent Treatment by Abbie Greaves is bittersweet and sensitively written. I was drawn in to the story from the start and really hoped that Frank and Maggie would find a resolution. Deeply emotional, I was moved to tears by the end.

Harriet Tyce

Such stunning prose, and such insight for a debut author… I was bowled over by Abbie’s writing.

Claire Mackintosh

A remarkably assured debut which doesn’t go where you expect it to go. I very much look forward to seeing what she writes next.
