This special edition of Book Talk features three interviews recorded on location at Edinburgh International Book Festival last month.

Kate Summerscale, author of the phenomenally successful The Suspicions of Mr Whicher discusses the results of her success and her new book, another fascinating piece of historical non-fiction, Mrs Robinson’s Disgrace.

Angelmaker author Nick Harkaway talks about how being the son of John Le Carre meant being raised in 'a house full of stories', as well as going into detail about his own fiction writing.

Lastly, debut novelist Natasha Soobramanien explains her fascination with islands and describes how years of life experience shaped her novel Genie and Paul.
