  Shirley Hazzard's Friday 28 November 2003  
Shirley Hazzard's new book The Great Fire, has been described as brilliant, hypnotic, sublime and the most interesting novel published this year.

It's a love story set just after the end of the Second World War and is drawn partly on Shirley's own experience as a sixteen year old working for British Intelligence in Hong Kong in the late forties.
Shirley Hazzard joins Martha to talk about love, war and winning the peace.
'The Great Fire' by Shirley Hazzard is published by Virago Press; ISBN: 1860498906
