The Garden of Angels is now available from in Serbian. Many thanks to my publisher, Dereta, and, of course, my translator Danko Ješić. Hope I get to say thanks in person in Belgrade one day.
I was privileged to talk to the celebrated journalist and author Humphrey Hawksley as part of the Goldster Club Inside Story programme on January 20. It was fascinating to chat with Humphrey about The Garden of Angels, Venice, Rome, The Killing and writing.
So long since I’ve done any event speaking thanks to the pandemic — here’s hoping we can do this again live in person soon. Many thanks to Humphrey and the Goldster team for making this possible. The interview covers a lot of ground and lasts an hour.
Here’s the interview in full.
Delighted to say you can find me live online talking to my fellow author, the broadcaster and journalist Humphrey Hawksley, on Thursday January 20, for one hour starting at noon UK time. This is part of Goldster’s fascinating and growing library of interviews with contemporary authors. You can browse past ones here and see writers such as Joanne Harris talk about their work.
I’ll be speaking about The Garden of Angels, with some photos of Venice that show where the story came from. But we’ll also be covering earlier work such as The Killing series and the Costa books too, as well as chatting about the writing process as well. Really looking forward it.
You can book your free ticket to watch here — and take part during the chat while I’m online. Feel free to ask me about anything — except the garden pheasant.
Very flattered that the top Dutch book site Thrillzone have placed the translation of The Garden of Angels on the shortlist for thriller of the year. Many thanks to everyone in the organisation and my wonderful team at Boekerij for their continued support for my work in Dutch.
