Ajay Close

Ajay’s latest novel, ‘The Daughter of Lady Macbeth’, explores the ambivalent bond between mothers and daughters and the kernel of mystery in even the longest marriages, to ask: are we as civilised as we believe – or are we just animals at the mercy of our instinctual drives?

Set in Glasgow and rural Perthshire, the novel follows Freya, 43, her husband Frankie and her actress mother Lilias over a turbulent few months.
