Amanda Coe: 'I was one of those kids who read absolutely everything.'
Amanda Coe is an award-winning novelist and screenwriter whose first novel was What They Do in the Dark. She has also written extensively for television: her credits include the Channel 4 series As If, the feature Margot for BBC4, episodes of Shameless, and adapting John Braine’s Room at the Top, screened by the BBC. She was born in Yorkshire in 1965 and lives in London. Her gripping new novel, Getting Colder, beautifully traces the bereavement of playwright Patrick following the death of his wife, Sara, and her children Louise and Nigel’s struggle to understand why she abandoned them.
