Auður Ava Ólafsdóttir and Lina Meruane talk to Rosie Goldsmith

Fictions: New Life

Hay Festival 2018, 

Ólafsdóttir’s Hotel Silence won the Icelandic Literature Prize. Jónas feels his life is over. His wife has left him, his mother is slipping deeper into dementia, and his daughter is no longer the person he thought. He decides to buy a one-way ticket to a war-ravaged country and end to it all. But on arriving at Hotel Silence, his plans dissolve. Meruane is one of the most prominent voices in Chilean literature. In Seeing Red a Chilean writer moves to New York to pursue an academic career. While at a party her eyes haemorrhage. Blood floods her vision, rendering her all but blind. As she adjusts to a very different life, those who love her adjust to a very different woman – one who is angry, raw, funny, sinister, sexual and dizzyingly alive.

Fabulous Science: Exploding Myths in the History of Scientific Discovery

Hay Festival 2003, 
Louis Pasteur suppressed 'awkward' data because it didn't support the case he was making. George Mendel, the supposed 'founder of genetics' never grasped the fundamental principles of 'Mendelian' genetics. Joseph Lister's famously clean hospital wards were actually notoriously dirty. Drawing on history of science scholarship, Waller shows that many of our greatest heroes of science were less than honest about the experimental data and not above using friends in high places to help get their ideas accepted.
