In the blink of an eye – and the space of just four books – Richard Osman has gone from national institution and much loved TV personality to publishing phenomenon. His wonderful Thursday Murder Club series has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide and made him the biggest new fiction author of the decade. In a time of celebrity novelists, Richard is the real deal – crafting smart, thrilling, laugh-out-loud books that readers rightly love.

A global army of fans have been recruited to enjoy the adventures of Elizabeth, Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron, and now a new series and an iconic new duo is on the horizon in the forthcoming We Love Murders.

Richard will talk about books old, new and future as he’s interviewed by Festival’s Programming Chair Ruth Ware.
