In Conversation with Sarah Perry: Melmouth - Myth, Mystery and the Power of the Gothic

Sarah Perry is one of our most respected authors of Gothic literature. Her second novel, The Essex Serpent, published in 2016, was a number one bestseller, and won the British Book of the Year Award, selling over 500,000 copies in the UK alone. Tonight Perry talks to Prof. Patricia Pullman about her work, her influences and her latest novel, Melmouth, set in modern day Prague, and inspired by the 19th century Irish classic, Melmouth the Wanderer. Hauntingly beautiful and profoundly shocking, it's a masterpiece of moral complexity.
