Esther Gerritsen & Amy Mason (2015 Event)

The complex relationship between mothers and their daughters is at the heart of writing by bestselling Dutch author Esther Gerritsen and emerging talent Amy Mason. Both Gerritsen’s razor-sharp third novel Craving, translated into English by Michele Hutchison, and Mason’s prize-winning debut The Other Ida ask whether girls can ever escape the shadow of their mothers. Watch both authors in conversation with Lee Randall, filmed live at Edinburgh International Book Festival.
