Amanda Craig and Jane Corry In Conversation with Judi Spiers

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.

  • Very well organised, excellent variety in terms of author and presentation. Favourite was Tony Robinson, but I also really enjoyed Julia Shaw (memory very thought provoking), Richard Dannatt (good solid start to festival) JOHN Wright (local and good humour) Alison Weir (such research and knowledge) and Victoria Hislop (novel in a different style).
