MUM & DAD with Joanna Trollope
Sponsored by Waitrose Stroud
“Sometimes your parents don’t know best.”
It’s been twenty-five years since Gus and Monica left England to start a new life in Spain, building a vineyard and wine business from scratch. However, when Gus suffers a stroke and their idyllic Mediterranean life is thrown into upheaval, it’s left to their three grown-up children in London to step in and attempt to sort things out. It isn’t long, however, before long-simmering resentments start rising to the surface.
Born in her grandfather’s rectory in Minchinhampton, bestselling novelist Joanna Trollope is an astute chronicler of contemporary family life. Nowhere more so than in her twenty-second novel, “Mum and Dad”, which examines the ups and downs of family relationships across three generations. We’re delighted to welcome Gloucestershire native Joanna to Stroud Book Festival to discuss her latest novel and her distinguished fiction-writing career.
