Feasting on the Past - Edinburgh festival

Mon 18 Aug 3:30pm - 4:30pm Writers' Retreat  £7.00, 

We welcome two writers with cutting edge historical novels. Jonathan Grimwood is the author of award-winning alternate history (as Jon Courtenay Grimwood), but here he enters new territory with his breathtaking novelistic feast The Last Banquet. Jessie Burton, meanwhile, was the subject of a frenzied publishing battle to gain the rights for her Dutch Golden Age-set debut, The Miniaturist.
