The popular former Labour MP won a multitude of awards for his trilogy of memoirs: This Boy, Please Mr Postman and The Long and Winding Road. Now, for the first time, Alan Johnson is turning his pen to fiction and joins us to discuss his first crime thriller, The Late Train to Gypsy Hill – a fast-paced tale in which a chance meeting during a mundane city commute sets in motion a dramatic chain of events. Chaired by Clare Clark.
