This brilliant festival has gone digital this year, and I appear twice in very distinguished company

Thanks to the wonderful Victoria Dawson, I LOVED doing these interviews….

Backlisted

Absolute joy to do the Backlisted podcast (***** in the Times) with Erica Wagner, John Mitchinson and Andy Miller. Book of choice was Antonia White’s Frost in May but lots of chat about the three sequel novels plus Antonia’s somewhat problematical life… Producer Nicky Birch does a truly amazing job with four talking Zoomers

This praise for my memoir The Last Landlady is just gorgeous… thank you so much!

If we can’t go to the pub we can at least read about it, and my grandmother’s pub was one of the best.
