The Illuminations

Andrew O’Hagan’s fifth novel is a beautiful, deeply charged story about love and memory, about modern war and the complications of fact. He joined Rosie Boycott in conversation to talk about how the women of his childhood informed the character of Maureen in Illuminations. And in a reading from the novel, O'Hagan powerfully and uncompromisingly describes a firefight in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, involving young soldiers.
