Iphgenia Baal
Iphgenia Baal

Iphgenia Baal is a writer living and working in Bethnal Green. She was once very popular and at the start of a promising career in journalism, but she is much happier now. She has just finished her first book, 'The Hardy Tree' which is published by Trolley Books, and is considering moving to the monastery where they brew Buckfast to hand paint it onto a giant and illegible manuscript.
