Much-loved former Labour MP Alan Johnson makes a welcome return to MLF. Following his series of successful memoirs – This Boy, In My Life, The Long and Winding Road and Please, Mr Postman, Alan has turned to fiction, joining us to discuss his thrilling debut novel The Late Train to Gypsy Hill. Featuring a Ukrainian waitress mixed up in a poisoning plot and an administrator who finds himself on the run from Russian secret agents and the Met, it’s an enthralling, smartly written, page turner. Alan will discuss his passion for plot-twists, politics and writing with Ellah P Wakatama.
