Novelist Meg Rosoff talks about her first work for adults, Jonathan Unleashed, a romantic comedy about a man trying to get his disordered life back on track.

Jonathan Trefoil lives in New York and works in advertising, has an unhinged boss, an apartment that is borderline illegal and a girlfriend who would like to marry someone like him only richer and more humorous. Rosoff’s first foray into adult fiction has won rave reviews from the critics.

“Mordantly funny and searingly well written, her books read like Samuel Beckett on ecstasy” The Times.

Rosoff spent 15 years working in advertising before writing her first young adult novel, the million-selling How I Live Now, winner of the Guardian Children’s Prize and the Printz Award in the US. She is also author of Just in Case, What I Was and Picture Me Gone.

Here she talks to journalist and reviewer for the FT Suzi Feay.
