Kate Atkinson, “Transcription” at a Politics and Prose event 2018

Kate Atkinson discusses her novel, “Transcription”, at a Politics and Prose event at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church on 9/26/18. Kate Atkinson’s novels are beloved by readers across nations and genres. She’s won three Costa Novel Awards and Book of the Year nominations from indie bookstore associations on both sides of the Atlantic, and her hit detective series starring Jackson Brodie was adapted into the hit BBC series Case Histories. In her newest novel, Transcription, she returns to the World War II terrain she explored in the companion novels Life after Life and A God in Ruins. This time her hero is the reluctant spy Juliet Armstrong, recruited into MI5 to spy on British Fascists. Ten years after the war, Juliet finds herself confronted with figures from her past—and a whole new battle to fight. Atkinson is in conversation with award-winning journalist Madhulika Sikka. https://www.politics-prose.com/book/9… Kate Atkinson’s first novel, Behind the Scenes at the Museum, was named England’s Whitbread Book of the Year in 1996.
