The motivation to write a book is often deeply personal. These three startling new works of fiction have all been written in response to real-life subjects close to the hearts of the authors: decolonization and degentrification, the climate emergency, and the tension between modern and traditional customs. This panel will explore the stories behind the stories – the social, cultural, and environmental issues that inspired the books.
