Rose Tremain: Forty Years On

Novelist Rose Tremain reflects on 40 years as a writer

Forty years ago Rose Tremain’s first novel, Sadler’s Birthday, was accepted for publication. Since then she has published 14 novels, five collections of short stories, and has worked in radio, television and film. In conversation with the Royal Society of Literature’s Literary Director, Maggie Fergusson, she talks about her latest novel, The Gustav Sonata, about why she searches for subjects outside her own experience, and why, even in a novel, truth is all.

Sponsored by the Royal Society of Literature
