Debut novelist David Sanger will be talking about his comic masterpiece, All their Minds in Tandem, a hugely entertaining and tightly woven novel that explores the unreliability of memory.

David was a publicist for Faber for six years and worked with PD James, Seamus Heaney, Kazuo Ishiguro and Peter Carey. He will be discussing how these authors influenced and inspired him in his own writing and how his background in drama and lessons in impersonating and constructing a character have influenced his work.

All Their Minds in tandem book jacket All Their Minds in Tandem is set in post-Civil War America and follows tradesman who can take away people’s bad memories; allowing people with a questionable or traumatic past to forget their troubles. The book explores how communities form a collective memory of war and how that memory can be altered over time.
