Andrew Miller and Patricia Duncker
Hay Festival 1999
Reading and conversation with two leading authors, both of whom have chosen to write historical novels. Miller's Casanova is a portrait of the great lover set in C18th London. Duncker's James Miranda Barry tells the story of a legendary surgeon, dualist and socialite - a woman whose greatest achievement was to have passed for more than fifty years as a man.
