A book of the year in all national newspapers and recently long-listed for the 2021 Women’s Prize, Amanda Craig’s ninth novel is a stunning contemporary twist on Patricia Highsmith’s Strangers on a Train, as razor-sharp satire combines with psychological thrills. The novelist and journalist who Bernadine Evaristo calls ‘a skilful storyteller who vividly dramatises our lives with wit, wisdom and compassion’ will be in conversation with playwright and author Samantha Ellis.
