Maps for Lost Lovers

Two novels, set on the west coast of Scotland, explore how the imagination connects writers of different generations. In Hame, Annalena McAfee's heroine Mhairi McPhail moves to the remote Scottish island of Fascaray to write a biography of the late Bard of Fascaray Grigor McWatt, a cantankerous poet. Polly Clark's Larchfield is set in Helensburgh, where W H Auden took refuge after a broken engagement. Chaired by Diana Hope.
