Tickets £10 The Children's Book, A.S. Byatt's new novel, is a panoramic saga of family secrets, set against the backdrop of a Bohemian, artistic, late Victorian and Edwardian world. It poses questions about war and peace, art and society and whether famous writers of children's books are doomed to damage their offspring. The action moves from the Kent marshes, to Paris, Munich and the trenches of the Somme, while the vivid characters explore Fabianism, anarchy, free love, class differences and women's suffrage. Another tour de force from the internationally acclaimed author of Possession. Virginia Nicholson's Among the Bohemians was inspired by her own background. (DeadGoodBooks)
