Multi award-winning US crime writer T Jefferson Parker discusses mysteries, thrillers, and the experience of writing a mainstream literary novel, Full Measure, after decades of crime writing.

Parker was born in Los Angeles and has lived all his life in Southern California. He has won the coveted Los Angeles Times Book prize for mysteries, and three Edgar Awards – two for best mystery novel and one for best short story. Lionsgate has bought the rights to bring Parker’s famed protagonist, Charlie Hood, to the big screen. This after Parker’s first novel, Laguna Heat, was made into an HBO movie.

Here he talks to writer and academic Professor Sarah Churchwell, author of Careless People: Murder, Mayhem and the Invention of The Great Gatsby.

This event is part of the American strand at the festival.
