Pink Floyd guitarist and co-lead vocalist, David Gilmour has taken Twitter to express how proud he is with his talented and successful wife, Polly Samson, as her latest fiction, ‘A Theatre For Dreamers,’ took over the best novels of 2020 lists.
As you may remember, the British novelist and journalist, Polly Samson released her fifth novel, ‘A Theatre for Dreamers,’ on April 2, 2020, by Bloomsbury Publishing. The novel entered The Sunday Times Bestsellers List at Number 2 upon its release. It also attracted favorable reviews, with Alex Preston describing it in The Observer as ‘a blissful piece of escapism and a powerful meditation on art and sexuality.’
Set in the early 1960s, ‘A Theatre for Dreamers’ tells the story of 18-year-old Erica, who escapes from her controlling father in London to live among the colony of writers, painters, and musicians on the small Greek island of Hydra.
Most recently, Samson has celebrated the success of her superb fiction through social media. On Twitter and Instagram, Polly shared the reviews of her book in the ‘Best Novels of 2020‘ lists in The Telegraph, The Times & Sunday Times, and the Daily Mail.
Along with the readers of Samson, Pink Floyd icon David Gilmour has cherished her latest work. On Twitter, Gilmour re-tweeted his wife’s post about the success of the novel and said that he is so proud of her.
Here’s what Polly Samson said in her recent post on Instagram and Twitter:
“So lovely to see ‘A Theatre For Dreamers’ in the ‘Best Novels of 2020‘ lists in The Telegraph, The Times & Sunday Times and the Daily Mail.
