Anna Fargher was raised in a creative hub on the Suffolk coast by an artist and a ballet teacher. She read English Literature at Goldsmiths before working in the British art world and opening her own gallery.
The Umbrella Mouse is her first book, which she wrote on her iPhone notepad during her daily commute on the London Underground. It won the 2019 Sainsbury’s Book Prize for Fiction and was selected as Waterstones Book of the Month.
Anna lives in London and Suffolk. She is currently writing Umbrella Mouse to the Rescue, the eagerly anticipated sequel to The Umbrella Mouse, due for publication in April 2020.
