Man Booker nominee Patrick deWitt joins us from Oregon to present his latest novel, Undermajordomo Minor. Set in an Alpine hamlet, a young character stumbles into the investigation of a missing aristocrat. Annelies Verbeke is regarded as a literary phenomenon in Belgium. Her novel Thirty Days features a handyman who has left the city bustle for a rural patch, not realising it has one of the highest suicide rates in western Europe. Chaired by Nick Barley.
