Polly James is the author of two novels and the popular "Mid-Wife Crisis" blog, which was shortlisted for the Orwell Prize for Blogs in 2011. (The Orwell Prize is awarded for the work that comes closest to George Orwell's ambition to make political writing into an art.)

"A properly good writer." (India Knight.)

Polly's debut novel featured the story of Molly Bennett, who is the narrator of the "Mid-Wife Crisis" blog. "Diary of an Unsmug Married" was published by HarperCollins in 2014.

"It made me giggle, and it made me think." (The Daily Mail.)

Polly's new book, "Would Like to Meet" is out on June 30th 2016, and is again published by HarperCollins.
