Writer’s Voice with Francesca Rheannon
Two novels exploring love, trauma and the legacies of war. Both are based on true stories from World War II.
First, a play written by Rabindranath Tagore is put on by orphans in Warsaw just before they are taken to the death camp. Then, re-staged decades later. Jai Chakrabarti tells us about his novel A Play for the End of the World.
Then, personal trauma and collective trauma intersect with a love story. Caroline Lea tells us about her new novel The Metal Heart. It’s set on an Orkney Island during WWII, where Italian prisoners and British islanders find conflict and common ground.
