About the Author

Ruth Hogan is the author of several bestselling novels, including The Keeper of Lost Things. She lives north of London in a chaotic Victorian house with her husband and a much-loved pack of rescue dogs.


"Another gem from the queen of heart-filled storytelling, The Phoenix Ballroom is an enchanting tale of community, friendship and acceptance, illuminating the joys of living your life as your own true self whatever your age. With multifaceted characters, crystal clear prose and a luminous story, The Phoenix Ballroom sparkles as kaleidoscopically as the chandeliers that are alight once more. A hugely entertaining read." -- Sarah Haywood, bestselling author of The Cactus

"Will make your heart uplifting novel filled with wit, heart, and humor that's as satisfying as a turn around the dance floor."
-- Janice Skeslien Charles, New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Library

"Hogan is the queen of uplifting fiction and Madame Burova reminds us why. Each character is lovingly crafted, their stories beautifully and heartbreakingly woven into something magical. The writing crackles with humor and warmth whilst not being afraid to tackle the harsh realities of racism in the 1970s. It's the kind of story you want to devour greedily but then feel bereft that you won't get to spend more time with Imelda, Cillian, Billie, Treasure, and all the other glorious characters. I can't imagine a better book in which to lose yourself at the moment. Stunning, immersive and absolutely wonderful." -- Annie Lyons, author of The Brilliant Life of Eudora Honeysett, on The Moon, the Stars, and Madame Burova

"Ruth Hogan has stirred together a charming fairy tale in which people may be more lost than the things and generosity and compassion may be the key to finding a way home. Also there are dogs. Delightful." -- Helen Simonson, author of Major Pettigrew's Last Stand, on The Keeper of Lost Things

"Hogan's writing has the soothing warmth of the cups of cocoa and tea her characters regularly dispense...old-fashioned storytelling with a sprinkling of magic." -- Kirkus on The Keeper of Lost Things
