Clare Jacob

Clare Jacob was brought up in London and New York. She read English at Oxford and became a barrister because she loved John Donne. After years of defending clients accused variously of bomb-making, hiding cocaine in coconuts and stealing under-pants, she decided to capture the lunacy and mystery of it all in a novel. She is married with three children.
