Hay Player

Aminatta Forna and James Meek talk to Rosie Goldsmith

Fictions – Scale

Hay Festival 2013, 

Forna’s The Hired Man is a powerful novel about the indelible effects of war and the memories which stir beneath the silence of a quiet Croatian town. Meek’s The Heart Broke In is a rich, ambitious family drama of love, death and money in the era of gene therapy and internet exposés.
