Madeleine Bunting & Jing-Jing Lee at the Spiegel Tent


War-time family secrets lie at the heart of Madeleine Bunting and Jing-Jing Lee’s debut novels. Award-winning journalist Bunting’s Island Song focuses on families under siege in Nazi-held Guernsey. Lee’s How We Disappeared begins in the author's native Singapore as it's under attack from Japan in 1942; decades later a deathbed confession sparks a chain of haunting events. Hear them discuss their fresh takes on the past.
