Sitting down with Georgina Godwin this week is the hugely acclaimed novelist, short-story writer and critic Amanda Craig. She returns to the show with her latest novel, ‘The Three Graces’. Set in contemporary Tuscany, the book examines the current state of Europe and explores difficult themes such as migration, racial discrimination and ageing. Craig opens up about her first experience of being published, navigating the “chick lit” genre and how Victorian literature inspired the array of more than 100 characters who appear – and often reappear – in her books.
