Mat Osman and Richard Osman in conversation

Brothers in Fiction

Hay Festival 2023, 

Brothers Mat and Richard Osman discuss turning their hands to fiction. Mat – bassist and founder member of iconic British rock band Suede and a composer of music for TV and films – speaks about his debut The Ghost Theatre, a dazzling punk reimagining of Elizabethan London through the eyes of a clairvoyant, bird-worshipping protagonist and an unlikely theatre troupe. Richard, a producer and television presenter, explores the world of his Thursday Murder Club novels, a cosy crime series set in a retirement community. The latest Murder Club book is The Bullet That Missed.
