Fictions – Nature

Hay Festival 2015, Monday 25 May 2015, 9am–9.45am - Elmley Foundation Cube

Melissa Harrison and Laline Paull

 Discover two of the most thrilling new voices in fiction. Building to an extraordinary climax over the course of one spring month, Harrison’s second novel At Hawthorn Time is both a clear-eyed picture of rural Britain, and a heartbreaking exploration of love, land and loss. Paull’s debut The Bees is set entirely in a beehive. It is the story of a heroine, Flora 717, a sanitation bee who, in the face of an increasingly desperate struggle for survival, changes her destiny and her world. They read and talk to Mary Loudon.
