A N Wilson: Coming to Terms

A N Wilson was at the first Edinburgh International Book Festival 40 years ago. Since then, he has produced millions of words of journalism, 20 novels and a barrage of biographies. Yet somehow he looks back and sees ‘a life of failed promises’. Confessions is a memoir of Wilson’s early life: an exercise in humility. Is he right to frame his unusually successful life in words of self-doubt? Join him in this lively conversation with Stuart Kelly.
