Sofka Zinovieff’s novel Putney is a contemporary Lolita. Its subject is sexual obsession, revolving around an abusive relationship, unacknowledged for forty years, between a grown man and a young adolescent.

Tessa Hadley’s novel Late in the Day explores the impact of loss on a group of long-standing friends. Old entanglements and grievances are brought to the surface as the past is re-examined.

Both books raise questions about the shifting sands of morality as buried secrets are exhumed in a different era.

Chaired by Juliet Nicolson, author of A House Full of Daughters.
