Lesley Glaister, Pan Houston, Barbara Gowdy

Hay Festival 1999, 
Reading and Conversation. Glaister's Sheer Blue Bliss is a thrilling novel about the sources of art and the unpredictable forces of loss and human craving. Houston, the author of the cult classic Cowboys are my Weakness presents her first novel Waltzing the Cat, a beautiful novel about relationships and place with one of the most dazzling aerial sequences ever written. The spectacularly inventive and magical Gowdy returns with her novel The White Bone, a story in which we learn everything anout elephants, their societal structure, their mythology, their language, their beliefs, an entire invented universe which is brilliantly put together, it seems almost logical.

Diana Athill, Andrea Ashworth, John Walsh

Memoir

Hay Festival 2000, 
Athill is one of publishings legends. She worked for the BBC throughout the second world war and then helped Andre Deutsch establish the publishing company that bore his name. For almost fifty years she was widely regarded as one of the finest editors in London working with Naipaul, Jean Rhys, Gitta Sereby and Brian Moore. She was also a considerable and unjustly neglected writer. Two of what she called her 'documentary books,' Instead of a Letter and After a Funeral anticipated the modern memoir in their directness and intimacy. Ashworth's remarkable memoir of a very disturbed 1970s childhood Once in a House of Fire is hailed as a searing masterpiece. Walsh's The Falling Angels is a stunning portrait of his Irish youth in Battersea, and gives a beautifully rendered account of his mother's death.
