Fictions - Lived Lives
Hay Festival 2012
The Forrests is our tip for this year’s Man Booker - a New Zealand novel that sings with colour and memory; that speaks of family and time, dysfunction, ageing and loneliness, about heat, youth, and how life can change if ‘you're lucky enough to be around for it’; Origins of Love is a huge novel from the Costa Prize-winner about the multi-million dollar, global surrogacy industry.
