Kit de Waal: Scenes from an Unpredictable Childhood

Kit de Waal’s influence across contemporary British literature is so broad as to be almost immeasurable. So how is it that one of our titans of the written word grew up with only the Bible to read? De Waal comes to this year’s Festival to chat about a childhood caught between three worlds and her unforgettable new memoir Without Warning & Only Sometimes with Damian Barr.
