Simon Mawer & Patrick McGrath

The Cold War: Still Hot

Man Booker shortlisted Simon Mawer continues his Eastern European fascination with his new novel Prague Spring which follows two hitchhiking students into the cauldron of Czechoslovakia in 1968. Patrick McGrath’s The Wardrobe Mistress observes the early Cold War era from the perspective of London in 1947; a compulsive story that demonstrates why, in the aftermath of a ruinous conflict, the war wasn’t really over after all.
