Longlisted for the 2010 Orange Prize, M J Hyland’s astonishing novel This is How tells the story of a man searching in vain for a better life, but who ends up in deep trouble. In this event, the wonderfully engaging Hyland discusses what it takes to write a sensitive portrayal of a mixed-up character who is not so much a monster but ‘monstered’ by the system.
