William Boyd - Trio

Available: Saturday 31 October LIVE at 7pm - on demand until midnight Saturday 7 November

Sorry, this event isn't currently live. The event will be available to view on Saturday 31 October LIVE at 7pm.

Event details:

A fantastic hour in the company of master novelist, William Boyd. In conversation with Douglas Rae, Boyd will talk about his new novel Trio but will range far and wide as he discusses his many crazy adventures over a long career in the movie business working with, amongst others, Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig – not to mention David Bowie and the art world hoax he and Boyd concocted together. With much else besides this promises to be an intriguing and revelatory encounter.

William Boyd is the author of 15 novels including A Good Man in Africa, winner of the Whitbread Literary Award and the Somerset Maugham Award; An Ice Cream War, winner of the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize and shortlisted for the Booker Prize; Any Human Heart, winner of the Prix Jean Monnet, and Restless, winner of the Costa Novel of the Year.

William Boyd will be in conversation with Douglas Rae.
