Gladfest 2018: Annabel Abbs - Reimagining Lost Lives: The Challenges of Biographical Fiction

Read more
With her ability to re-imagine the lives of women almost lost to us, Annabel Abbs is one of the UK’s most exciting new historical novelists. Her first book, The Joyce Girl, tells the tragic story of James Joyce’s only daughter and was called ‘a hugely impressive debut’ by the Observer and ‘the best twentieth century fiction of the year’ by the Historical Novel Society. Her forthcoming novel, about Frieda Lawrence (wife of D.H. and the model for Lady Chatterley), is generating pre-publication buzz. Both books deftly weave fragments of fact into fully realised lives – and it might surprise you to learn how little we know about such prominent women. In this hour, Annabel explains how she develops fiction from tiny facts.
