Kate Atkinson is that rare gem, a literary novelist whose books race to the top of the bestseller lists. She won the Whitbread (now Costa) Book of the Year prize with her first novel, Behind the Scenes at the Museum. Her most recent novels, including When Will There Be Good News? and Started Early, Took My Dog feature the irresistible private eye Jackson Brodie. She talks to Times Literary Editor, Erica Wagner, about her latest novel, Life After Life, published in March 2013.
