Bestselling author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Deborah Moggach talks about her new novel The Carer, showing that life certainly doesn’t stop when your pension starts, and parents don’t always behave the way you expect them to. She is joined by comedian and author Jenny Eclair, whose new novel Inheritance talks about the consequences of actions rippling down through generations of a family. Both books are poignant, wry and utterly compelling, examining the baggage of inheritance and family ties. Chaired by Tim Hubbard.
