November 2016


Born in Sweden, Jessica moved to London before her career in publishing, editing and PR took her to the USA and the Middle East. Having also completed her Masters in Creative Writing and taught journalism to undergraduate students, writing is her true passion. Jessica won a Montegrappa First Fiction Award at the Emirates Festival of Literature in 2016, catching the eye of her agent Luigi Bonomi. Having since secured a multiple book deal, Jessica, known by friends to be infectiously positive, balances her time between her writing and her growing young family.

A great ghost story that kept me turning the page. Loved the eerie setting and how I found myself questioning every character and the choices they made.

This is a great book club read because there is so much to discuss - the author has managed to provide two engaging perspectives. You fall in and out of love with the characters (but mostly in love), as you follow their separate, yet entwined, journe ...more

This was exactly the kind of book I needed to read right now - smooth, lovely writing, which also made me miss the UK (in a good way). Family drama focused on the relationship between sisters; their differences, arguments but also sense of humour. An ...more

Jessica Jarlvi and 36 other people liked Sue's review of The Vanishing Half:
The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett
"4.75*

What an amazing journey I’ve been on. Not sightseeing, more like “eye opening” moments.

The Vanishing Half will not only enthrall you it will enlighten you.

Twins. One skin colour lighter than the the other. Living in a small village named Mallard" Read more of this review »

“These days writers are also told to be politically correct and write about what they know. But if writers can’t explore and learn while they write, they would be writing memoirs and although I’ve had a fairly interesting life, there are only so many books you can write about yourself (and I’m not sure I want to write any!)”
Jessica Jarlvi

“share a love of literature, Anna was a kind and thoughtful”
