Talk: SOME HERE AMONG US: THE JOURNALIST & THE FICTION WRITER
Some Here Among Us takes readers from the shores of New Zealand to the political heart of Washington and on to the hills above Beirut. Set across two generations of political upheaval, it is a stunning meditation on youth, promise and loss in the face of two of the most controversial wars in modern history, and the global legacies they leave behind. This is a novel for our times.
Peter Walker (NZ), author and former foreign editor at the Independent on Sunday, will discuss his novel, its prevailing themes and the influence of a career in journalism on his fiction writing. In conversation with him will be Christina Lamb, one of Britain’s leading foreign correspondents who has reported all over the globe. She is also author of seven books, including the bestselling The Africa House and I Am Malala.
