Lara Feigel & Amanda Craig: Rewriting the Classics
The 1950s produced some iconic novels. Key amongst them are The Group by Mary McCarthy and Strangers on a Train by Patricia Highsmith.
Both have recently been re-written by contemporary authors: Lara Feigel has given The Group a makeover and Amanda Craig has taken the premise of Strangers on a Train and made it her own in The Golden Rule.
They talk to Alex Clark about the process of rewriting and their inspirations.
