Sarah Winman: Still Life Sun 11 Sep, 4pm
British author Sarah Winman has captivated millions with sweeping, richly rendered works celebrating love in all its forms, from the paean to life and loss that is Tin Man, to the coming-of-age tale of family and friendship, When God Was a Rabbit. Her latest novel, Still Life, is no exception, roaming Florence and London in a joyful ode to love, passion and art set against the upheavals of history. See Winman in conversation with Ailsa Piper about her ‘rare, affectionate novel that makes one feel grateful to have been carried along’ (Washington Post).
