Allegra Huston is a screenwriter and novelist. Her non-fiction book Love Child: A Memoir of Family Lost and Found was published by S&S in the US and Bloomsbury in the UK. It was serialised in The Sunday Times and praised by Salman Rushdie, Simon Schama, Andrew Harvey and Lynn Barber, among others.
Her first novel, Say My Name, tells the story of a 48-year-old woman who, through an affair with a much younger man, discovers her erotic freedom and with it her sense of herself. Her goal was to write a Fear Of Flying for women in their forties and beyond. The novel sold at auction to HarperCollins in the UK and the US, and was published in February 2017.
