Christopher Nicholson is the author of several highly-praised works of fiction, including ‘The Elephant Keeper’, which was short-listed for the Costa Novel Prize, and ‘Winter’, a study of Thomas Hardy in old age. ‘Winter’ was described by the Times as ‘pitch-perfect….shrouded in ice, fog and the dark shadows of the trees that tower over Max Gate,’ and by the Guardian as ‘a superfine, thistledown novel about a novelist, a place and about love and loss’. David Lodge called it ‘a wonderful novel, moving, gripping and illuminating.’ In this talk Nicholson will be investigating the strange story of Hardy’s association with one of the rarest of all British birds, the cream-coloured courser.
The ticket price includes a set two-course lunch at the Crown Inn, Marnhull. The Crown is famous for its association with Tess of the D’Urbervilles.
