Bridget Van der Zijpp

In her new novel In The Neighbourhood of Fame, Bridget Van Der Zijpp introduces us to a once famous musician who's now pottering in his suburban garden but still revered by his community for his one-hit-wonder. We get to know Jed Jordan not through his own words and thoughts, but through those of three women - his wife, a childhood friend and a teenager who talks to him at the local dog park.
