The Power of the Past: Denise Mina & Jenni Fagan at Granite Noir


Granite Noir: The Power of the Past

Denise and Jenni  focus in on the past in a new series, Darkland Tales, and explore some of Scotland’s most murky history. In Rizzio, Denise Mina brilliantly portrays the sexual dynamics and politics of power – between men and women, monarch and subjects, master and servants. Offering a visceral depiction of a culture of fear and superstition in HexJenni Fagan explores the lingering connections between womanhood and the occult, and the obsessive mania of a king who saw the threat of demons and witches all around him.

Chaired by Alex Clark.
