Originally a series of letters to her sister, LOVE NINA recorded the life of an au pair to the children of a literary editor amongst whose neighbours were Alan Bennett and Jonathan Miller. Nina Stibbe’s unsophisticated yet confidently witty account of that bohemian life won her Non-Fiction Book of the Year at the 2014 National Book Awards. Her novel MAN AT THE HELM was shortlisted for the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse prize for comic fiction. The paperback of PARADISE LODGE was published in April.
Nina will be in conversation with Hannah Beckerman, journalist and author. Hannah is a freelance book critic and features writer for The Observer and FT Weekend Magazine. Her debut novel The Dead Wife's Handbook was published in 2014 by Penguin and she is currently working on her second novel.
