Her most recent novels, Life After Life and A God In Ruins, both won the Costa Novel Award and were critically acclaimed on both sides of the Atlantic.
A profoundly original writer, Kate will be in Conversation with Alex Clark about her forthcoming novel, Transcription. A novel of extraordinary power, wit and empathy, Transcription transports the reader to 1940where eighteen year old Juliet Armstrong is recruited into the world of espionage and sent to an obscure department of MI5 tasked with monitoring the comings and going’s of British fascist sympathisers. A decade later and now a producer at the BBC, her life begins to unravel and she is unexpectedly confronted by the events from her past. A different war is being fought now, on a different background, but Juliet finds herself once more under threat.
Join us to see Kate read and discuss her new masterpiece.
Tickets £10 / Ticket and a copy of Transcription £26
