Sally Bayley – Girl With Dove

Sally’s first novel, Girl With Dove was featured as BBC Radio 4’s Book of the Week. It is an extraordinary book describing a chaotic and deprived childhood, based in Littlehampton and Lancing, where life is redeemed and understood through the stories and characters in the books she took refuge in. The sequel No Boys Play Here continues the exploration of childhood, family and identity with the assistance of Falstaff and Prince Hal from Shakespeare’s Henry lV. The books are humorous, troubling, lyrical and fascinating. Sally was the first child to go to University from West Sussex Social Service’s care system. She now teaches Literature and Creative Writing at Oxford University.
