March 11, 2019 British Author Tessa Hadley Speaks with Host Kathleen Marshall About Her New Book, ‘Late in the Day’

Tessa Hadley

Tessa Hadley is a British author writing novels, short stories and non-fiction. She describes her writing as focused on family relationships. Her novels have been longlisted for the Orange Prize and the Wales Book of the Year, twice, and in 2016, she won one of the Windham-Campbell Literature Prizes for fiction. The Windham-Campbell judges described her as one of England’s, “finest contemporary writers,” and state that her writing, “brilliantly illuminates ordinary lives with extraordinary prose that is superbly controlled, psychologically acute, and subtly powerful.”

Late in the Day is the story of two couples, all four life-long friends, and their children, whose lives are changed forever with the death of one of the couple’s husbands.  He, it seems, was the glue keeping all of the relationships intact, the one who brought joy and laughter into all of their lives.  Tessa Hadley allows the reader to not only enjoy the story she weaves, but she also invites the reader to examine their own personal values in, and out, of relationship.
