Michel Faber (2011 Event)
The astonishing, triumphant television adaptation of Michel Faber's novel The Crimson Petal and the White represents a radical new step for the previously tired costume drama genre. In this event, Faber discussed his book with Lucinda Coxon, who adapted the novel for television and Romola Garai, the actor who brought the young prostitute Sugar so vividly to life on screen. Chaired by Guardian literary editor Claire Armitstead. This is the full hour-long event, recorded live at the 2011 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
