The Books That Built Me with Polly Samson
We were joined for an evening with literary aficionado, Mrs Trefusis in conversation with Polly Samson for an evening with The Books That Built Me – a literary desert island discs. Polly is the author of two novels and two short-story collections; she's also a much acclaimed lyricist, writing both for Pink Floyd and David Gilmore.
Samson’s novel, The Kindness, described by Tatler as 'atmospheric and vividly told' is a deeply affecting and exquisitely written examination of love, guilt, betrayal and the deception that can lie at the heart of every relationship. Her writing is tender and true, and we were delighted to welcome her to the Club for this one off evening as she discussed her writing as well as the books which have built her.
