Hay Player

Esther Freud, MArtha McPhee, Julie Myerson

Hay Festival 1997, 
Hideous Kinky and Peerless Flats established Freud as one of the most acute and perceptive writers about family and youth of her generation. She introduces her new novel Gaglow in which a daughter and father revisit their troubled family past through the recovery of the ancestral German Estate. Bright Angel Time is the glittering debut of American novelist Martha McPhee - a beautiful tale of a family on the road, broken and reformed and growing up. Myerson reads from The Touch - "Her sentances are so funny and spare.. the images and observations leave lasting physical impressions on your nerves" - The Independent.
