Event description

Description

Join authors Elizabeth Day and Sarah Vaughan as they talk to talk to Gower Street’s Elizabeth Morris about their seductive new books, The Partyand Anatomy of a Scandal. Set in the unassailable heart of the British establishment, and with shades of both Hollinghurst’s The Line of Beauty and Apple Tree Yard, these novels are about secrets and betrayal, privilege and hypocrisy, and how men in power manipulate the truth for their own ends.

About the Books:

Elizabeth Day’s The Party, tells the story of under-privileged Martin Gilmour, who wins a scholarship to prestigious boys’ school, Burtonbury. He quickly becomes fixated on the popular and wealthy Ben Fitzmaurice, and gains admission to an exclusive world. But Martin knows a secret about Ben and this has bound them together for 25. At Ben’s glittering 40th birthday party, the newly rich Martin once again feels that pang of not-quite belonging, and begins to wonder – after years of being kept close by the Fitzmaurice’s – whether their loyalty to him has shifted.

‘Witty, dark and compelling’ Sebastian Faulks

‘A well-paced slow-burner of a literary thriller – think Donna Tartt’s The Secret History or Alan Hollinghurst’s The Line of Beauty… The Party is a gripping page-turner’ Observer

Sarah Vaughan’s stylish thriller, Anatomy of a Scandal centres on a high-profile marriage that begins to unravel when the husband is accused of a terrible crime. Sophie is sure her husband, James, is innocent and desperately hopes to protect her precious family from the lies which might ruin them. Kate is the barrister who will prosecute the case – she is equally certain that James is guilty and determined he will pay for his crimes.

‘The best courtroom drama since Apple Tree Yard … sensational’ Clare Mackintosh

‘Brilliant, shocking, and gripping, once I started, I couldn't stop reading’ Claire Fuller
