Hunting Raven is proud to welcome Deborah Moggach, bestselling author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Tulip Fever.

Deborah will be talking about her new novel The Carer; a deliciously waspish, witty and poignant novel about age, sibling rivalry and having to grow up - at last.

James is getting on a bit and needs full-time help. So Phoebe and Robert, his middle-aged offspring, employ Mandy, who seems willing to take him off their hands. But as James regales his family with tales of Mandy’s virtues, their shopping trips, and the shared pleasure of their journeys to garden centres, Phoebe and Robert sense something is amiss. Is this really their father, the distant figure who never once turned up for a sports day, now happily chortling over cuckoo clocks and television soaps?

Then something happens that throws everything into new relief, and Phoebe and Robert discover that life most definitely does not stop for the elderly. It just moves onto a very different plane - changing all the stories they thought they knew so well.

Deborah Moggach OBE is an English novelist and award-winning screenwriter. She has written nineteen novels, including The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, The Ex-Wives, Tulip Fever, These Foolish Thing, Heartbreak Hotel and Something to Hide. She lives in Wales.

Books will be available to buy and Deborah will be happy to sign them on the night.
