Natalie Haynes & Lindsey Davis

Fate, Revenge and Furies

What is the draw of the ancient world for contemporary novelists and readers? Find out with the historical crime novelist Lindsey Davis, whose massively popular, darkly resonant books featuring the detectives Falco and Flavia Alba are set in Classical Rome, in conversation with the comedian and classicist Natalie Haynes, whose debut psychological novel, The Amber Fury, explores loss, obsession and the need to connect through the prism of the Greek Tragedies.
