Manchester Literature Festival presents…
In her witty and poignant new novel, The Carer, much loved novelist and screenwriter Deborah Moggach tells the tale of James, his new carer Mandy, and his middle-aged children, Phoebe and Robert. Has the arrival of Mandy prompted a change in James, or did Phoebe and Robert simply not know him that well in the first place?
Deborah considers family, aging, and the stories we construct to protect ourselves and others. She is the author of 19 novels, including Tulip Fever and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, as well as film and television adaptations, including the BAFTA-nominated Pride & Prejudice. Hosted by Rachel Cooke.
