Alice Sebold talks to Katherine Viner
Hay Festival 2003,
The American Author discusses her celebrated debut novel The Lovely Bones with the editor of Guardian Weekend magazine. Narated from 'heaven' by a fourteen-year-old girl who has been raped and murdered, the story follows her family and the neighbour who killed her. And she launches Lucky, her memoir about her own rape and assult, and her struggle for understanding and recovery: 'you save yourself or you remain unsaved'.
