That difficult third novel: An exclusive preview


Jon McGregor’s Even The Dogs was a difficult book to write, and isn’t always an easy book to read. Hear Jon talk about the challenges of writing about darker themes, and how there is always, eventually, hope.

Jon found his place as the youngest contender and the only first novelist on the 2002 Booker Prize longlist for his novel If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things. The novel has since won the 2003 Somerset Maugham Award, and his second novel So Many Ways To Begin was published in 2006.
