Tatiana de Rosnay’s new novel, The Rain Watcher, is out now!

The book centres around a family reunion in Paris, for the 70th birthday of Paul Malegarde.

But Paris is flooding, the Seine is about to burst its banks, and the family are facing a crisis of their own; Paul suffers a stroke and is taken to hospital.  As the natural disaster worsens, long-kept secrets come to the surface, including that of Paul’s son Linden, who has never been able to tell his father that he is gay.

Tatiana’s own son is gay, and in this piece for Gay Star News she describes ‘coming out’, as a parent.
