FAMILIES IN FICTION
29 Apr 2023
CHARLOTTE MENDELSON & MEG ROSOFF
Charlotte Mendelson (The Exhibitionist) and Meg Rosoff (The Great Godden), two award-winning novelists at the top of their game, explore family dynamics. In The Exhibitionist, Charlotte Mendelson introduces us to the family that surrounds Ray Hanrahan, artist and patriarch, helping to bolster his self-esteem and tenderly nurse his reputation – often at the expense of their own careers and happiness. Meg Rosoff, meanwhile, takes us to a holiday house by the sea where a big family regularly enjoys the summer – that’s until this year, when two strangers arrive and change everything. Two novels that it's impossible to forget.
Charlotte and Meg will be interviewed by Alison Gomm.
