Hannah Kent’s debut novel Burial Rites has been shortlisted for the Stella Prize and the Bailey Women’s Prize for Fiction. Featuring the curious case of Agnes Magnúsdóttir, the last woman to be hanged in Iceland, it was one of the international success stories of 2013.

Join her as she recounts how she came to write the story of this misunderstood woman, in conversation with Jo Case.

Presented in partnership with Montalto Vineyard & Olive Grove.
