Breakfast Talk: Meet Bill Clegg

Breakfast Talk: Bill Clegg on Did You Ever Have A Family

STOCKHOLM | Wednesday 20th April 09:00

We are thrilled to introduce New York writer Bill Clegg, who will join us for breakfast in the Stockholm shop to discuss his bestselling debut novel Did You Ever Have a Family. Bill is one of New Yorks foremost literary agents, and the author of two previous memoirs.

Did You Ever Have a Family was longlisted for both The National Book Award and The Man Booker Prize. An elegant and heartrending story about a terrible tragedy, it’s also an unforgettable tale that reveals humanity at its best through forgiveness and hope. At its core the book is a celebration of family – the ones we are born with and the ones we create.

Who is Hamlet? Is Lady Macbeth really evil? Can Caliban really be a twitchy speeded Goth freak? What’s so interesting about Lady Blanche, Lucius, Queen Margaret, Cassius, Paulina, Emilia, Celia...?

These questions sent the new Bardolator Ruby Jand on a journey of exploration into the world of Shakespeare. On this morning, Ruby will discuss what Shakespeare means to us today, present some views on his life and plays, and read excerpts from her newly released book Shakespeare Calling.
