The Goldster Book Club
Humphrey is an award-winning foreign correspondent, whose BBC assignments have taken him to crises all over the world. He is also the best-selling author of both fiction and non-fiction titles. One, Dragonfire, outsold Harry Potter when published in India. His non-fiction Asian Waters tackles the rise of China and his latest thriller Man on Fire originated when reporting from America’s remote border with Russia.
Lucinda is the author of more than twenty books, with subjects ranging from biographies, to the history of art, social history and literary history. She’s also a public speaker, a TV and radio broadcaster, a university lecturer and an award-winning travel writer. A bonus literary endorsement is that she's the great-great-great-granddaughter of Charles and Catherine Dickens.
WHAT'S COMING UP
Have you ever wished that you were a fly on the wall listening to your favourite authors chatting among themselves about their books and ideas, or laughing about their experiences? Or been curious about the publishing world that prints and promotes the best sellers we love? Every fortnight, our Inside Story feature, previously called the Book Chat, brings a famous author, translator or publisher to talk to our two in-house authors and presenters, Lucinda Hawksley and Humphrey Hawksley. Authors of thrillers and murder mysteries alternate with historians, journalists and critics. We sometimes have the chance to meet the authors themselves whose books we have discussed or intend to discuss. Join us for an hour on alternate Fridays, and put forward the questions you've been dying to ask.
