Lionel Shriver doesn’t shy away from controversy, and instead seems quite drawn to it. She rose to acclaim following the release of her novel ‘We Need to Talk About Kevin’ in 2003. Since then, she’s won the Orange prize for fiction and written for ‘The Wall Street Journal’, the ‘Financial Times’, and ‘The New York Times’. Shriver speaks with Georgina Godwin about her newest work ‘Should We Stay or Should We Go’, which explores different approaches to how we maintain our dignity in death with a surprisingly light touch.
