Mark Haddon talks to Charlotte Higgins at the Edinburgh International Book Festival

Mark Haddon is back with his first novel in seven years – and this could be his masterwork. The author behind The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time takes us on another wildly imaginative adventure in The Porpoise, a modern-day reworking of Shakespeare’s Pericles. In this event filmed live at the 2019 Edinburgh International Book Festival, Haddon discusses one of the must-read novels of the year with Guardian writer and classics expert Charlotte Higgins.
