Simon Mayo and Robert Harris in conversation with Joe Haddow

An evening of top-tier historical fiction, with Simon Mayo, Robert Harris and Joe Haddow.

BBC radio presenter and writer Simon Mayo discusses his new novel, Mad Blood Stirring, a riveting novel based on true events following the aftermath of war in 1815, and set within the political and emotional powder keg of Dartmoor Prison.

Simon is joined by the internationally bestselling master of historical fiction, Robert Harris, for an exclusive pre-publication paperback release of his masterful spy novel, Munich, a literary thriller set during Chamberlain’s ill-fated negotiations for peace with Hitler’s Germany in 1938.

Overseeing the event with customary aplomb is Joe Haddow, BBC book boffin and presenter of the literary podcast Book Off.
