In this conversation at the Kansas City Public Library, Scottish-born fiction writer Margot Livesey talks about her seventh book of fiction, The House on Fortune Street. This contemporary novel about four Londoners, told from the four distinct points of view, is filled with entertaining references to literary works such as Jane Eyre and Great Expectations. Livesey reads from the novel, and talks about her approach to crafting this intricate and engaging fiction, and how it compares to her earlier books, like Eva Moves the Furniture.
