DAILY MAIL WH SMITH Literary Lunch


WE ARE delighted to announce that the speakers for our Spring Literary Lunch are the novelist and screenwriter Deborah Moggach and the poet and critic Clive James.

Deborah Moggach is one of our most successful writers.

The prize-winning author of numerous TV screenplays including Goggle Eyes, Final Demand and Love In A Cold Climate, she has also written 15 novels, including Tulip Fever shortly to be filmed by Steven Spielberg's Dream Works.

Her new novel,These Foolish Things, is both a hilarious and poignant look at the business of getting old and how well - or not - we deal with it.

She will share with us her experiences of the writing life, of which she has said: 'If it's going well, it is a very enviable and rather magic existence.'

Poet, broadcaster, satirist and wit Clive James has been delighting audiences since his arrival here from Australia in 1962. An outstanding television critic, he has also written three volumes of autobiography as well as collections of travel writing, literary criticism and verse. His recently published collection,The Book Of My Enemy, spans 1958 to 2003 and has received rave reviews, with critic John Gross describing James as a poet who 'rejoices in language and shows enormous skill in using it'.
