Anna Mackmin & Nina Stibbe

Surviving the Seventies

The 1970s are brought into sharp focus by Anna Mackmin and Nina Stibbe today. Devoured, a new novel by award-winning theatre director Anna Mackmin, is set in a commune in deepest Norfolk where a 12 year old girl seeks a positive future. Nina Stibbe’s Reasons to Be Cheerful features a teenager wracked with doubt when stepping out of her sheltered village life in Leicestershire to venture into the big bad metropolis. They talk to James Runcie.
