Inside Story with Lucinda

with Humphrey Hawksley

02 June 2023

This week, it’s a double helping of Hawksleys on Goldster, as Lucinda interviews her co-presenter, Humphrey Hawksley, about his own life as an author and his critically acclaimed novels.

Humphrey is a journalist, and was, for many years, a foreign correspondent for the BBC. He now uses his finely honed journalistic research skills and in-depth knowledge of world politics to create a series of tense and compelling thrillers, featuring an iconic hero, Rake Ozenna. To date, Rake – a native Alaskan – has featured in four books: Ice Islands, Man on Fire, Man on Edge and Man on Ice. Each one will keep you on the edge of your reading chair – and will keep you guessing until the very end.

In response to several requests by Goldster members, Lucinda will be chatting to Humphrey about his writing process, his extensive and fascinating research, his extremely clever plots and how he manages to create such a memorable cast of characters. Join them at 12pm on Friday 2 June.
