The Times has said of Susie Boyt that “she writes with great precision and wisdom about the human heart under duress”. Her six novels include Love & Fame (a complex and witty exploration of grief), and The Small Hours (a psychological study set in a nursery school). The acclaimed author and Financial Times columnist has also recently edited The Turn of the Screw and Other Ghost Stories by Henry James. Her much-loved memoir My Judy Garland Life examines, love, loss and hero-worship through the prism of the troubled star. Boyt is the daughter of the late artist Lucian Freud and great-granddaughter of Sigmund. Join her for a discussion of life, art and the landscape of human feeling, with Kate De Goldi.
