- Helen Dunmore: “Exposure is a novel about what is hidden and about secrets”.
- By Derek Palacio.
Desperate to secure the safety of her children, so that they will not have to suffer the hate she felt as a child, she flees to the Kent coast, and takes centre-stage in this story. Dunmore, who has a keen interest in the history of war, likes to show the affect of great events on women and children. He had been suspected of spying. Then, the character of Lily came to me.

I wanted to show that everything we construct is very fragile. Exposure is a wonderful read; literary, yet page-turning, and laced with humour. Even someone who comes in for two pages needs to earn their place.
Exposure: A Novel
He has completely lost touch with the kind of society he was trying to create through his activities, and is half-heartedly passing on information for its own sake, and because he could not get out of it. Dunmore has always received good reviews, and some critics have described Exposure as her best book yet. It has been a long, varied career, which has built up slowly.
You need to sometimes write books which are not commercially successful, if you are to develop as a writer, or which will find a handful of passionate readers. But we now measure things in a different way.
One of four children — and stepmother to one and mother to two — Dunmore has written since she was a child. At 21, she began publishing poetry in literary journals. I can see them.
Writing a novel is as much a process of cutting away as adding, and I think of all the stories that I have decided not to tell. The inaugural winner of the Orange Prize, Dunmore has several awards and short-listings to her name, but is not motivated by such accolades.
