Clare Jacob, Ceri Radford and Amy Sackville talk to Peter Florence
The First Novel
Hay Festival 2011
The challenge of starting out met in three ways: Jacob’s Ophelia in Pieces charts the fall and rise of a young lawyer; Radford (who attended the Festival’s Beacons Project when she was at school) conjures a comic gem of a life-crisis in A Surrey State of Affairs; Sackville’s award-winning The Still Point is an intriguing family story set across a hundred years.
