Join the Booker-winning novelist as she reflects on her career in writing and the influence of Macbeth, climate change, and social media.
In 2013 Eleanor Catton became the youngest winner in Booker Prize history for her genre-defying epic The Luminaries. Ten years on, her follow-up is similarly unclassifiable but just as satisfying.
A gripping psychological eco-thriller, Birnam Wood is Shakespearean in its wit and drama and provides an unflinching examination of the human impulse to ensure our own survival.
Eleanor will be talking about life since the Booker win, discussing her work on screen adaptations (the acclaimed 2020 adaptation of Emma) and explaining what fiction can do to address the climate crisis.
