Jenny Diski’s new novel Apology for the Woman Writing (Virago) is based on the true story of Marie de Gournay, the passionate and complex young woman who was only 18 when she was so overwhelmed by the work of Michel de Montaigne that she had to be revived with hellebore. When he died four years later, she became the editor and champion of his work and a professional writer herself. Diski is a novelist and essayist, and the author of several works of non-fiction, including the award-winning Stranger on a Train. She is a regular contributor to the London Review of Books.
