Shortlisted for the 2018 Costa First Novel Award

The Observer Promising first-time British novelists 2018: 'A novel about self-discovery and second chances'

Sometimes it takes a stranger to really know who you are.

When Tina Hopgood writes a letter of regret to a man she has never met, she doesn't expect a reply. When Anders Larsen, a lonely museum curator, answers it, nor does he. They're both searching for something, they just don't know it yet. Anders has lost his wife, along with his hopes and dreams for the future. Tina is trapped in a marriage she doesn't remember choosing.

Slowly their correspondence blossoms as they bare their souls to each other with stories of joy, anguish and discovery. But then Tina's letters suddenly cease, and Anders is thrown into despair. Can their unexpected friendship survive? 
AUTHOR: ANNE YOUNGSON worked for many years in senior management in the car industry before embarking on a creative career as a writer. She has supported many charities in governance roles, including Chair of the Writers in Prison Network, which provided residencies in prisons for writers. She lives in Oxfordshire and is married with two children and three grandchildren to date. MEET ME AT THE MUSEUM is her debut novel, which is due to be published around the world.

'The loveliest short novel of late love you'll ever read. Whenever I talk about it, I simply cry with joy' - JAMES HAWES 

'A correspondence that begins with a search for clarity becomes something much deeper and richer - both for the two main characters, and for the reader. Anne Youngson peels away the layers that prevent us from living the lives we ought to be leading, and her book is both tender and absorbing.' - LISSA EVANS, author of Their Finest Hour and a Half

'Meet Me at the Museum starts so quiet and small like a bud tightly closed against the winter then it unfurls into something so alive and truly beautiful. I was immensely moved by it' - TOR UDALL, author of A Thousand Paper Birds

'Precise, clear, funny, poignant and truthful. This is a work of art, dear readers. Revel in its beauty' - ADRIANA TRIGIANI
