The literary life of EDWARD JAMES, author,reviewer, occasional poet and former pension adviser to the government of Kyrgyzstan
I was recently fortunate enough to interview Melvyn Bragg on behalf of the Historical Novel Society about his new book Now is the Time, a novel of The Peasants Revolt. Melvyn and I were students at Wadham together, although it is many years since we met.
Melvyn will be a keynote speaker at next year’s conference of the Historical Novel Society in Oxford in September. You will find my interview with Melvyn on the Conference website. I’ll be at the conference and I hope to meet some of my readers there. The HNS is now over 3000 strong.
