Delphine de Vigan: Based on a True Story


Based on a True Story (D'après une histoire vraie) by Delphine de Vigan is a prize-winning, sophisticated and chilling novel of suspense which continually blurs the line between fact and fiction. Just published by Bloomsbury in a translation by George Miller, this unputdownable book takes the reader into a nightmarish story of master manipulation. Rarely seen in London, Delphine de Vigan will tell us more about the boundaries between reality and fantasy, friendship and fascination, and a little too about her previous bestselling books No and Me and Nothing Holds back the Night (No et moi, Rien ne s'oppose à la nuit). The discussion will be chaired by journalist and writer Celia Walden (The Telegraph).
