Chester Literature Festival: Paul Dowswell

I went to my first Chester LitFest event yesterday: a talk by Paul Dowswell about his new book Sektion 20.

It is about East Germany in the Cold War and sounded so interesting I bought a copy (ostensibly for my sons, but I think I shall be reading it first). I also bought Paul's Ausländer which has been hugely acclaimed - and shortlisted for just about every prize (for young adult fiction) going.

Bloomsbury have done a fine job of the covers. In artificial light they sparkle most impressively
