We are thrilled to introduce New York writer Bill Clegg, who will join us for breakfast 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.
Bill will be in conversation with Karin Linge-Nordh, publisher at Forum bokförlag. His book will be available to purchase both in Swedish and in English.
’A quiet novel of devestating power. Clegg has drawn a tale of prodigious tenderness and lyricism . . . [Did You Ever Have a Family] is a wonderful and deeply moving novel.’ – The Guardian
