Maldon Books is thrilled to welcome Laura Price, author of the wonderful debut novel, Single Bald Female for an evening discussion & signing


We’re delighted to welcome Laura Price to Maldon on Thursday 16th June! Laura is a multilingual journalist who travels the world writing about restaurants. A proud Yorkshire lass at heart, she spent five years living and working in Brazil, Argentina, Mexico and Ireland, and is now settled in South London. Laura worked for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, Bloomberg News and Facebook for 15 years before becoming a freelance food, travel and lifestyle writer and consultant. Her work appears in publications including 50 Best, Condé Nast Traveller, National Geographic Traveller and Foodism. She is also project manager for 50 Next and contributing editor for 50 Best. Her debut novel, Single Bald Female, was published in 2022 by Pan Macmillan in the UK and HarperCollins in Germany.


Jessica Jackson has hit all the milestones for turning 30 – the career, the loving boyfriend and a cosy London flat they share with their cat. But a shock diagnosis of breast cancer turns Jess’s world upside down, and her contented life implodes with it. Around her, her friends’ lives continue to follow the script, with the big white weddings and the baby scans. With her own future so uncertain, the only thing Jess is sure of is that she’s being left behind. In the midst of it all, she meets Annabel, an enigmatic twenty-seven year old with incurable cancer. But while Annabel may not have long left, she understands much more about living than anyone Jess has ever met. And she’s determined to show Jess how to make every day count…

Frank, funny and poignant, Single Bald Female by Laura Price is a completely unforgettable story of love and friendship.
