Jane Gardam (2013 event)

Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and twice the winner of a Whitbread Award, Jane Gardam also received a Heywood Hill Literary Prize for her distinguished literary career. But she’s not stopping yet: with Last Friends Gardam has completed her bestselling trilogy about a Hong Kong QC nicknamed Old Filth (acronym for ‘failed in London, try Hong Kong’). She joined audiences in Edinburgh to share the secrets of a lifetime of literary achievement with Literary Editor of the Guardian, Claire Armitstead. This event was recorded live at the 2013 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
