We talk to Sarah about political wives who stand by their men, how as a society we have not yet come close to recognising how entrenched sexual harassment is and 'jobs for the boys'.

Nicole Nicole Krauss

As her new book Forest Dark is published, we talk to Nicole about the most urgent question literature is asking itself, her strange affinity for Kafka and why she is a fan of ambivalence.

John John Banville

John Banville on his new novel, Mrs Osmond, his desire to write not in the style but in the spirit of Henry James, how Isabel is forced to open her eyes to many layers of reality, and why, despite his original intentions, he left the ending open.

Ingela Ingela Arrhenius

We spoke to Ingela Arrhenius about her new picture book, her working practice and inspiration.

Gabriel Gabriel Tallent

Gabriel Tallent on why sometimes a good teacher can be the best ally a young person may ever have, how backstories may never completely explain what makes people who they are and why he would have been willing to let a central character in his novel die.

Olivia Olivia Laing

We spoke to author Olivia Laing about her first foray into fiction and Kathy Acker.

Sylvia Sylvia Brownrigg

As her latest novel, Pages for Her, is published in paperback, we chat to Sylvia about the bewilderment new mothers can often feel, defining ourselves in relation to the people we love and whether female only environments/support networks are still relevant and necessary.

Kamila Kamila Shamsie

We talk to Kamila Shamsie about her new Man Booker-longlisted novel, Home Fire, and discuss why she finds the story of Antigone so compelling, how being an Outsider is more of an issue than faith itself and the connection between radicalisation and the fetishising of masculinity.

Maggie Maggie O'Farrell
Fiction, Non-fiction

As her memoir about her seventeen brushes with death is published in paperback, exclusively for Foyles, we talk to Maggie about chronology as a brand of tyranny, the permeability of the membrane between life and death and both the strangeness and familiarity of writing non-fiction.

Sophie Sophie Mackintosh

We spoke to Sophie Mackintosh, author of The Water Cure, about her disturbing debut novel, short stories and the dystopic nature of fiction.

Megan Megan Hunter

As her striking and poetic debut is published in paperback read our interview with Megan about placing the book in a very long-range context of human history, exploring precariousness in all its forms and using language to achieve both intimacy and distance.

Madeline Madeline Miller

Madeline Miller returns to Ancient Greece for her second novel, Circe. In our exclusive interview, we discover more about who Circe was, what she can teach us today, and which Greek god Madeline would be.

Adam Adam Kay

'It’s difficult to compare any other job with being a medic – the highs can never be as high, and sadly the lows can never be as low.' Adam Kay on life as a Junior Doctor.
