Aminatta Forna & Lisa Halliday

Chance Encounters

In Aminatta Forna’s Happiness two strangers collide on Waterloo Bridge; Attila, a Ghanaian psychiatrist and Jean, an American studying urban foxes. In Lisa Halliday’s Asymmetry, Alice, a New York editor, begins an affair with a much older writer, while Amar, an Iraqi-American, is detained at Heathrow airport. Two novels about young and old, the personal, the political and the many faces of migration. Chaired by Lennie Goodings.
