Two haunting explorations into the darker side of the human psyche. In his outstanding Brodeck's Report, Philippe Claudel's investigation into the lynching of an artist exposes uncomfortable truths and a community's fear of outsiders. M J Hyland's much praised This Is How documents how one man's struggle to find his place in society leads him to a remote seaside town and ultimately his tragic downfall.

We are delighted that the award-winning and booker-shortlisted novelist M J Hyland will join Philippe Claudel for this event - she replaces Julia Franck who was originally scheduled to appear.
