Wimbledon BookFest is delighted to welcome much loved fiction writer Patrick Gale. Patrick’s recent novels include A Perfectly Good Man, The Whole Day Through, Notes from an Exhibition and the Costa-nominated A Place Called Winter.

Patrick will be talking about his new book Take Nothing With You, a poignant comedy of resilience and survival which asks if we can ever really leave our past behind. This is a festival highlight not to be missed - as Armistead Maupin has commented: ‘Few writers have grasped the twisted dynamics of family the way Gale has. There’s really no one he can’t inhabit, understand and forgive.’
