Tickets £10 Can the enlightened reputation of Bohemian households survive the recollections of their female servants? Jill Dawson's novel, The Great Lover, explores the inner lives of the romantic poet, Rupert Brooke, and the maid whose love for him is revived when she receives a letter, in later life, from a Tahitian woman claiming to be the writer's daughter. Bethan Roberts' The Good Plain Cook is loosely based on Peggy Guggenheim's short sojourn in rural Sussex with her Communist poet lover and is told from the perspective of the young cook whom he seduces. Jill Dawson's previous work includes Fred and Edie and Wild Boy. Bethan Roberts is the author of The Pools. (DeadGoodBooks)
