One of Britain’s best-known novelists and the country’s leading broadcaster on the arts, Lord Melvyn Bragg, talks about his latest novel, Grace and Mary. The novel follows one man’s re-creation of a forgotten family history following visits to his ageing mother, Mary, in her nursing home and his attempts to rekindle her fading memories of the past. He finds himself delving into the secrets of Mary’s fractured childhood and the sorrows of her spirited mother, Grace.

Bragg has written many novels and works of non-fiction including Without a City Wall, winner of the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize, and The Soldier’s Return, winner of the W H Smith Literary Award. Three other novels were longlisted for the Booker prize.  He is particularly known for his work as editor and presenter for more than 20 years of the ITV arts programme, The South Bank Show, and won an academy fellowship at the Bafta Television Awards in 2010.
