It is 30 March 1924. Beginning with an intimate assignation and opening to embrace decades, Mothering Sunday has at its heart both the story of a life, and the life that stories can magically contain. Constantly surprising, joyously sensual and deeply moving, this novella is a masterpiece from the Booker winner. He talks to Peter Florence.
