What is Home?
One of this year’s Guest Selectors, Val McDermid leads a lively and thought-provoking discussion on the shifting nature of home with three leading authors who have written about the topic. Cairo-born Leila Aboulela was raised in Khartoum but has lived most of her adult life in Aberdeen; Kamila Shamsie was born in Karachi but has spent much of her adult life in America and Britain, Robin Robertson was brought up on the north east coast of Scotland. What does ‘home’ mean to them?
