POSY SIMMONDS & IAN McEWAN


The Business Of Books: Is the book industry ill-serving both writers and readers - and writing all a publishers’ game? How does a literary novel find its way out - from the threat of the blank page, through the slush pile, the blockbuster 3 for 2’s and the literary prize judging panels? Award-winning illustrator and cartoonist, Posy Simmonds is best known for the satirical strip she writes for The Guardian. Her graphic novels include True Love and Fred, the film version of which was nominated for an Oscar. Her most recent book is Literary Life. Ian McEwan has won numerous awards and prizes, from the Booker to the Whitbread, for books including The Child in Time and most recently, Atonement. Several of his books have been translated into film and McEwan has also written several plays and scripts for television.
