FOR REALS: DENISE MINA & NICOLA WHITE
A conversation about crimes real and imagined
Crime fiction is beloved by readers all over the world.
And yet true crime is often regarded as a grubby cousin: capitalising on tragedy, sensationalist and unseemly. Why is fiction acceptable, true crime not, and what happens when the lines between the two are muddied?
Denise Mina’s new novel, The Long Drop, is based on serial killer Peter Manuel, and set in 1950s Glasgow. Nicola White’s In the Rosary Garden, won the 2013 Dundee International Book Prize, finding its inspiration in the Kerry Babies tribunal of the 1980s. In this session, expect a candid and curious conversation about crimes, real and imagined.
