Sunday Night Live Linda Grant

in conversation with Samira Ahmed

Arts & Culture

Internationally bestselling writer Linda Grant discusses her new book A Stranger City with broadcaster Samira Ahmed.

London, once the beating heart of an empire upon which the sun never set, is a city so imprinted into the Western literary tradition that it’s very name carries near mythic implication. Here, in Linda’s new book, she takes the idea of fabled London, regal London and turns it on its head as a place of isolation, unstable loyalties and random meetings. Both Linda and Samira are writers interested in the shift from European imperial hub to its emergence as a multicultural melting pot in just a few decades.

Expect a lively and thought provoking conversation from this pair as they discuss how the myth of the metropolis is re-shaped and re-imagined by immigrant communities.
