Maybe Esther

Hay Festival 2019, 

An interview with the author of the international bestselling memoir. Petrowskaja’s family story is inextricably entangled with the history of 20th-century Europe. There is her great-uncle, who shot a German diplomat in Moscow in 1932 and was sentenced to death. There is her Ukrainian grandfather, who disappeared during WWII and reappeared forty years later. And there is her great-grandmother – whose name may or may not have been Esther – who was too old and frail to leave Kiev when the Jews there were rounded up, and was killed by a Nazi outside her house. Philippe Sands is author of the Baillie Gifford Prize-winning East West Street.

Malachy Doyle

Hay Festival 2005, 
Writing a book can take the popular Welsh writer anything from a day, Well, a Crocodile Can!, to a year, Georgie. Some of the stories he writes are very short, but he goes over and over them hundreds of times until he feels they are just right. He takes them into the garden, or the bathroom if it's raining, and reads them out loud. His most recent book is Amadans, an hilarious combination of fantasy, technology and monsters.

Jimmy Carr

Hay Festival 2003, 
The sublime deadpan stand-up, winner of the Time Out Comedy Award for 2002. The satire of liberalism and political correctness is savage and brilliant. He gets more twists in a one-liner than you'd believe possible. Carr is the most original comedy talent to emerge since the last one.
