Leigh Chambers welcomes poet, author and novelist Elizabeth Speller. Elizabeth’s latest novel At Break of Day centres around four very different men whose lives intersect at the Battle of the Somme in 1916. Elizabeth talks about how her own family’s history has inspired her writing and why the first World War has been at the heart of so much of her fiction. We also chat to Jennifer Wallace whose debut novel Digging Up Milton is based on the real life pillaging of John Milton’s grave. And Emily Winslow, explains why writing her memoir Jane Doe January about the attempts by the US justice system to indict the man who raped her twenty years ago, was so crucial to helping her come to terms with what happened.
