Truth or Dare?

Hay Festival 1999, 
"I am certain of nothing but the truth of imagination"
Novelists Sian James and Jacinta Bell talk to Nigel Jenkins about the hidden experiences that form their fictions. James' new Summer Storm has the same subtle understanding of character displayed in her acclaimed childhood memoir Sky Over Wales. Moving between Mid-Wales, London and Tunisia, Bell's Exiles is the most exciting Welsh debut for many years.
