Alan Hollinghurst (2011 Event)

It's many years since Alan Hollinghurst's last novel, The Line of Beauty, was published – a story so powerful that it beat David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas to win the 2004 Booker Prize. His follow-up, The Stranger's Child, is perhaps the most hotly-anticipated British novel of 2011. In an epic story of two families from the eve of the Great War to the close of the 20th century, Hollinghurst paints a picture of British society in a state of flux. He talks about his work with Steven Gale in an hour long event, recorded live at the 2011 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
