The Bone Season, the first volume of a projected seven book series, was published in August 2013 shortly after Samantha Shannon had completed her English degree at St. Anne’s College, Oxford. By November the book had been translated into 27 languages and the film rights secured by a London-based production company.
Dr Sam Thompson is Lecturer in English Language and Literature at St. Anne’s College, Oxford. His novel Communion Town, published by Fourth Estate, was longlisted for the 2012 Man Booker Prize. Dr Thompson has also written for the Times Literary Supplement, the London Review of Books and BBC Radio 4.
Following the interview, wine will be served in the Divinity School where the paperback edition of The Bone Season will be available for purchase (pre-publication).
