Jonathan Unleashed!

Meg Rosoff
Chair: Amanda Craig

 In Jonathan Unleashed, a romantic comedy set in Manhattan, the wryly funny prize-winning author Meg Rosoff, in conversation with novelist Amanda Craig, presents her first novel for adults, a quirky take on the Bildungsroman. Have you ever wished there was a handbook on How to be a Person ? That’s exactly how Jonathan Trefoil feels as he struggles to meet the demands of adult life.
 
Meg Rosoff was born in Boston and educated at Harvard and St Martin’s College, moving to London in 1989. Her books have won or been shortlisted for 20 international book prizes, including the Carnegie Medal, the Orange First Novel Prize and the National Book Awards Young People’s Literature Award. 
 
Amanda Craig is the author of six novels, including A Vicious CircleLove In Idleness and, most recently, Hearts and Minds, which has been optioned for development as a TV drama series by Hat Trick for Channel 4. She lives in London, is a reviewer and broadcaster, and is also the children's book critic for The Times. Amanda Craig is currently completing her next novel.
