We are delighted to welcome Radio 4’s Bookclub back to the Dylan Thomas Centre. Presented by James Naughtie, Bookclub invites leading writers to discuss their best known novel with readers.

Jim is joined by Owen Sheers to discuss I Saw A Man, a novel about a man, Michael, who’s struggling to cope with the death of his wife, Caroline, killed in a drone strike while making a documentary about Pakistani jihadists; at the same time, he has become friendly with his new neighbours, wealthy Josh Nelson, a Lehman Brothers banker, and his perfect family. Michael is ‘adept at fitting into the lives of others’, and the Nelsons are soon doting on him, showing him off at parties, allowing him to babysit their bright young daughters. On its original publication in 2015 the book was hailed as a gripping piece of storytelling.

This is a unique chance to take part in one of Radio 4’s most popular arts programmes.
