Olivia Laing's The Trip to Echo Spring: Why Writers Drink is an investigation into the myth of the alcoholic writer, focusing on the overlapping lives and work of Scott Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Tennessee Williams, Berryman, Cheever and Carver and reveals the terrible price that creativity can exact. Patrick McGrath's new novel, Constance, is a multi-layered story of a troubled marriage and a damaged family in 1960s Manhattan. His previous books include Trauma, Asylum, and Spider, which was made into a film by David Cronenberg. Olivia Laing's previous book is To The River. Chaired by Sigrid Rausing, publisher and philanthropist.
