The Books That Built Me with Andrew O’Hagan


Earlier this month I went to my second The Books That Built Me – a literary salon where the invited author discusses the books that had a profound impact on their life.


As always the incredible Mrs Trefusis led the session with author Andrew O’Hagan being led through a literary journey. It was a brilliant evening and all the books Andrew chose were linked with the theme of identity. That theme is also hugely prevalent in The Illuminations and it was wonderful to hear about how different authors addresses the ever changing nature of identity in their work.

Already looking forward to the next one!
