About the Author
Originally from Manchester, Alexandra Singer travelled the world before settling in the UK to study law, working for an international law firm.In 2008 aged just twenty-five, Alexandra was diagnosed with a near fatal neurological illness, and spent three months in a coma. Remarkably, Alexandra is on the road to recovery and when not writing, works as a business writer. She has recently completed an MA in Bioethics and Medical Law, and teaches languages,literature and creative writing. She is also an Italian translator. Tea at the Grand Tazi is Alexandra’s debut novel and was recently longlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize.
In her writing she explores memory, surrealism as metaphor, alienation and loss. She has been described by Stylist magazine as 'one of the hottest debut authors to watch this year' and 'she may well single-handedly have put alienation back on the literary map.'
