Simon Mayo talks to Georgina Godwin

Fictions: Mad Blood Stirring

Hay Festival 2018 , 

Mayo’s first adult novel weaves Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet through a tense prison drama that sets itself against the epic backdrop of mighty Dartmoor in 1815. The passions unleashed in this riveting account place black against white and Americans against Britons with the stirring soul of a forbidden love caught in between.
