Tracy Chevalier (2013 event)

Her novel based on a famous Vermeer portrait sold a staggering 4 million copies worldwide and put Tracy Chevalier straight into the international literary premier league. Now she’s produced The Last Runaway, which has been described by Rose Tremain as ‘the best thing Chevalier’s written since Girl With A Pearl Earring’. Recorded live at the 2013 Edinburgh International Book Festival, this event sees Chevalier in conversation with Scottish journalist Jackie McGlone, describing a journey to the sunlit cornfields of Ohio where life is not as idyllic as it may sound.
