Wed May 25 EVERYONE BRAVE IS FORGIVEN Chris Cleave
Chris Cleave, a Guardian journalist and celebrated novelist (Incendiary, The Other Hand), discusses this tale of a young teacher determined to stay in Blitz-time London. A tender love story bubbling up through the devastation of London and Malta in the Second World War, the book was inspired by the lives of Cleave's grandfather, who served in Malta, and his grandmother, who drove ambulances during the Blitz.
