Shoot with new novelist Felicia Yap

Yesterday turns on the nature of memory. It “holds up a mirror,” Yap says, “to how we make memories, what we choose to forget, what we choose to believe.” These are themes, she believes, that resonate widely, perhaps why rights to the book have already been sold in 11 countries outside the U.K. Yap has just four main characters, but the plot is complex—a murder mystery that takes in cot death, plastic surgery, a psychiatric hospital in the Hebrides and London’s Belmarsh prison—and it ends with a magnificent twist. Most surprising of all, perhaps, is that what begins as a tale of serial adultery morphs into a love story.
