Susan Sellers is the author of many books and for twenty-six years was Professor of English Literature and Creative Writing at St Andrews University in Scotland. Her first novel ‘Vanessa and Virginia’ about sisters Virginia Woolf and Vanessa Bell was translated into seventeen languages and adapted for the stage.

Bringing the river to life in raucous style each June, ‘The Bumps’ are a chaotic series of rowing races. In this Cambridge tradition, which dates back to the early 19th Century, boats set out in single file and must catch and touch, or ‘bump’, the boat ahead without being caught by the rowers on their tail.
