In Linda Grant’s new novel A Stranger City a woman’s body is found in the Thames, entangled in the chains of HMS Belfast. How is it that she has apparently left no trace of the life she has left behind? Is it really so easy to disappear in the city? In Sadie Jones’s new novel The Snakes, Bea and Dan, recently married, escape their tiny flat in London to spend a few precious months in France. But then tragedy strikes, suddenly and brutally.
Linda and Sadie will be in conversation with Sam Leith, Literary Editor of The Spectator.
