About the Author

Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett is a columnist, feature writer and editor for the Guardian newspaper, contributing mainly to Opinion and Features sections, and the Weekend magazine. In 2012 she co-founded the Vagenda, a funny feminist blog which was published in book form by Vintage. In 2014 Rhiannon was short-listed for a press award for young journalist of the year. As a freelancer she has written for publications as wide ranging as Elle, Stylist, the New Statesman, The Independent and Time. She has extensive radio experience, having appeared on Radio 4's Woman's Hour and the Today programme.


'Combining an intriguing mystery with political scrutiny, Cosslett reveals how four walls can mean so much more than bricks and mortar.

* Stylist *

'Set in 2011 and the 1980s, [Rhiannon's] excellent debut novel tells the edgy and compelling story of Harmony.'

* A Previewer Pick, The Bookseller *

'A brave, beautiful, coming of age novel - full of generational conflict, trauma, and Bohemianism. Truly a writer to watch.'

* Nina Stibbe *

'Surprising and keenly observed, this is an original contemporary presentation of London: nostalgic but also brutal, with deft and poignant cultural comparisons. A jagged, bold, time-twisting dazzler!'

* Emma Jane Unsworth *

'An elegiac intergenerational howl that answers boldly back to its literary parents. Cosslett's talent for social commentary continues to arraign and amuse in this boozy tainted love-song to London.'

* Claire Lowdon *

'The Tyranny of Lost Things is a hazy, evocative novel about place and belonging and a beautiful love letter to London in the summer'

* Sophie Mackintosh *

'Cosslett paints a portrait of millennial London, contrasted with the idealism of Harmony's bohemian parents... Compelling.'

* The Herald *

'I absolutely loved it and cannot recommend it enough, especially for fans of Ali Smith.'

* Jordan Baker, @bookish_j_ *
