Poker Face

Betty Trask award-winning novel

‘Often bitterly funny, it is piercingly observant … Unsentimental, sometimes disturbing and unforgettable’ (Good Book Guide); ‘Barnard’s short, sharp sentences are like shards of glass’ (Guardian); ‘sharp writing’ (New Statesman and Society).  Josie spoke about Poker Face at festivals such as the Cheltenham and Dartington Literary Festivals.
