Join two of the country's leading writers, as they examine life in Britain at two different precarious moments; inter-war and the current day.
Tracy Chevalier and Amanda Craig discuss their new novels examining life in Britain at two different precarious moments; inter-war and the current day. These are our two hot tips for you reading fans, and we’ve brought them together in this live event - as part of our new Sunday Night Live series.
In Chevalier’s A Single Thread, Violet Speedwell has lost a brother and a fiancee to the first world war and has to bravely reshape her life, broader than society’s limiting expectations. Chevalier’s wholly immersing attention to period detail creates a beautiful and engrossing novel.
In Craig’s, A Golden Rule, 29 year old Hannah is going through a messy divorce struggling to stay financially afloat and look after her young daughter when a chance encounter with a stranger named Jinni on a train to Cornwall changes the course of events. Hannah and Jinni agree to murder each other’s problematic husbands but the plot takes unexpected turns along the way.
