Hay Festival 2000, 
A reading and conversation with three fiction writers. The heroine of Samson's debut novel Out of the Picture purposefully seeks the lost father she is 'just like'. Lanchester follows the best-selling The Debt to Pleasure with Mr Phillips, about an accountant who loses his job. They are joined by the Canadian Merilyn Simmonds, who discusses and reads from her magical short story collection The Lion in the Room Next Door.
