Author K. Patrick: Mrs. S

REGISTER FOR FREE EVENT (includes reading and conversation with Europa Editor-in-Chief Michael Reynolds)

In an elite English boarding school where the girls kiss the marble statue of the famous dead author who used to walk the halls, a butch antipodean outsider arrives to take up the antiquated role of "matron." Within this landscape of immense privilege, where difference is met with hostility, the matron finds herself unsure of her role, her accent and her body.

That is until she meets Mrs. S, the headmaster's wife, a woman who is her polar opposite--an assured, authoritative paragon of femininity. Over the course of a long, restless summer, their unspoken yearning blooms into an illicit affair of electric intensity. But, as the summer fades, a choice must be made.

K Patrick was recently named one of 2023’s “Best New Novelists” by The Guardian. Their poetry has appeared in Poetry Review. Mrs. S is their debut novel. They are based in Glasgow, Scotland.
