The best selling authors will talk about their latest novels in conversation with BBC Radio and TV presenter Judi Spiers.
Quentin and Lottie Bredin, like many modern couples, can't afford to divorce and set off for a new life in the country. Part psychological thriller, part romance, part murder mystery, part commentary on today's society The Lie of the Land by Amanda Craig is a sparkling, panoramic novel about modern life.
Jane Corry's new novel Blood Sisters tells of three young girls who set off for school one morning: within an hour one is dead. Fifteen years later, Alison and Kitty are living separate lives, one in a care home with no memory and unable to speak, the other working as an art teacher but equally traumatised by events of the past. Meanwhile someone is watching who wants revenge for what happened that day.

It is excellent that Dorchester is now on the literary map
Absolute pleasure, thanks for such an enjoyable night. I think having Tony Robinson there promoting his autobiography was a great idea...
I was particularly delighted by how many of the audience seemed to know and appreciate my work. As you know, authors are solitary creatures - mostly - and for me at least it's a real pleasure to have good reason to leave my work-room (a shed in the garden with a too-seductive view of the Cambrians) and meet and talk with readers and fellow writers (not forgetting that many of us are both).
I very much enjoyed giving my talk and meeting you and all your colleagues. I can think of no way you could have been more accommodating.
...Enjoyable, engaging, enthralling...
It is really great to have a Literary Festival in Dorchester and I really appreciate all the hard work that goes into making it happen.
