Today, we wanted to share with you two interview clips featuring Ben Aaronovitch. The first, above, is from his Cymera Festival event, in which he discusses supernatural crime fiction with Adam Simcox and Jacky Collins.
The second clip, below, is a short clip from the Graham Norton Book Club, in which Ben is joined by Kobna Holdbrook-Smith to discuss the Peter Grant series (which Kobna has narrated since the beginning).
Gollancz recently published the 10th Anniversary edition of Ben’s first novel in the series, RIVERS OF LONDON. A great collector’s edition for fans of the series, as well as a great place to start for newcomers!
Just a quick heads-up: we’re very happy to report that Anne Griffin will be a guest on Graham Norton’s BBC Radio 2 show this Saturday! Anne will be discussing her critically-acclaimed and bestselling debut novel, WHEN ALL IS SAID! The show airs at 10am, but will also be available through the BBC’s various online media, too.
Graham was an early fan and supporter of WHEN ALL IS SAID…
WHEN ALL IS SAID is published by Sceptre in the UK, and is due to be published in North America by Thomas Dunne Books, in March. There are multiple translated editions on the horizon, too, and we’ll share information and covers as soon as we have them. In the meantime, here’s the English-language synopsis…
Five toasts. Five people. One lifetime.
‘I’m here to remember — all that I have been and all that I will never be again.’
At the bar of a grand hotel in a small Irish town sits 84-year-old Maurice Hannigan. He’s alone, as usual -though tonight is anything but. Pull up a stool and charge your glass, because Maurice is finally ready to tell his story.
Over the course of this evening, he will raise five toasts to the five people who have meant the most to him. Through these stories — of unspoken joy and regret, a secret tragedy kept hidden, a fierce love that never found its voice — the life of one man will be powerfully and poignantly laid bare.
Heart-breaking and heart-warming all at once, the voice of Maurice Hannigan will stay with you long after all is said.
