24 May 2013 – Charleston Festival, East Sussex
3.30pm - Encore with Joanne Harris and Salley Vickers
Joanne Harris’ Peaches for Monsieur le Curé is a return to the world that she made famous in Chocolat. Eight years have passed and the village in rural France, where the novel is set, faces contemporary issues. ‘Her characteristic love affair with scents, smells and sounds immerse the reader in a bath of seductive imagery in a brave and grippingly confected story’ (The Sunday Times). Salley Vickers’ The Cleaner of Chartres is a multi-layered novel revolving around a mysterious foundling: ‘subtle and joyous, a contemporary moral and psychological drama every bit as absorbing as Miss Garnet’s Angel’ (Sunday Times). Prepare to be stirred and delighted.
Chaired by Nicolette Jones, writer, critic and journalist.
