Rachel Joyce and S J Watson in conversation with Sandeep Mahal

Faber Academy’s bestselling alumni, Rachel Joyce and SJ Watson will be in conversation with Sandeep Mahal. SJ Watson’s first novel ‘Before I Go To Sleep’, became a phenomenal international success. His new jumpy thriller ‘Final Cut’ is all about time and memory - how and what we remember and how and what we try to forget.

Rachel Joyce is the award-winning author of the world-wide bestseller, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry. Her new novel 'Miss Benson's Beetle' is an uplifting, irresistible novel about two very different women on a life-changing adventure where they must risk everything, break all the rules, and discover their best selves - together.

They will be in conversation with Sandeep Mahal about their new books, paths to publication and experiences of film adaptations.



In a special literary salon S J WATSON will be reading from and discussing his new novel, FINAL CUT, with Damian Barr.
