Novelist Rupert Thomson will read from his new book, Never Anyone But You.

"Rupert Thomson deftly weaves a story that spans several decades—the Paris Surrealists, Nazi-occupied Jersey, heroic acts of resistance, and intense and enduring (and forbidden) love—into one seamless whole. Nail-bitingly tense and incredibly moving." —Monica Ali

Thomson is the author of nine novels and a memoir, including Secrecy, The Insult (which was shortlisted for the Guardian Fiction Prize and selected by David Bowie as one of his 100 Must-Read Books of All Time), The Book of Revelation, and Death of a Murderer. He lives in London.
