Caroline Sanderson of The Bookseller asks two of the UK’s most acclaimed contemporary authors how writers can hold a mirror up to our modern lives, and throw back at us the elements that make us human? Tessa Hadley’s new book Late in The Day explores the tangled webs at the centre of our most intimate relationships. Booker prize-winner Ben Okri creates a frightening, post -truth world in his much-anticipated The Freedom Artists. Both writers exploring the world we live in now in two very different, but no less valuable, ways.
