Event description
Join Mariella Frostrup as she meets one of the world’s most remarkable literary talents: Ann Patchett

About this Event

There are precious few writers alive today who have achieved the critical acclaim and global renown of the American novelist Ann Patchett. Her rare insight into the human condition have made her a household name and earned her a place on Time magazine’s list of the world’s 100 most influential people. A minimalist whose abilities ‘wipe the floor’ with her heftier competitors (Telegraph), her readers have learned to ‘expect miracles’ (New York Times) from each new work of fiction, and critics are frequently swept away by the ‘stillness and beauty’of her writing (The Times) and the ‘physically breath-taking’ power of her storytelling (Guardian).

Ann Patchett is also a celebrated essayist, her experiences distilled in This Is the Story of A Happy Marriage, which sees her scaling a 6 foot wall to join the LAPD, driving a Winnebago from Montana to Yellowstone, describing her tumultuous childhood, and an early marriage and its divorce.

In celebration of the release of her new novel, The Dutch House, Mariella Frostrup will invite Ann to explore the stories and events that have inspired her writing. Told with Ann Patchett’s inimitable blend of wit and heartbreak, The Dutch House is a story of family, betrayal, love, responsibility and sacrifice; of the powerful bonds of place and time that magnetise and repel us for our whole lives, and the lives of those who survive us.

Don’t miss what is sure to be an essential event for anyone who cherishes the transformative power of fiction.
