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; Linda Grant whose parents moved to Liverpool from Polish and Russian backgrounds; and Robin Robertson was brought up on the north east coast of Scotland. What does ‘home’ mean to them?
