Chad Harbach and Grace McCleen talk to Sarah Crompton
Fictions – Waterstones Eleven
Hay Festival 2012,
Harbach’s debut baseball novel The Art of Fielding is the current holder of the heavyweight Great American Novel belt; McCleen’s The Land of Decoration is a heartbreaking story of imagination and hard reality, of good and evil, belief and doubt. Both authors have (also) been selected by Waterstones in their celebration of debut fictions.
