Fiction: Jon McGregor— Lean Fall Stand

Jon McGregor, the Costa-award winning author of Reservoir 13, talks about his acclaimed new novel Lean Fall Stand.

When an Antarctic research expedition goes wrong, the consequences are far-reaching – for those involved and for their families back home. Robert, a veteran of Antarctic field work, holds the clues to what happened, but can no longer communicate them. Meanwhile Anna, his wife, navigates the sharp contours of her new life as a carer.

“It leaves the reader moved and subtly changed, as if she had become part of the story” -Hilary Mantel

Jon McGregor is the author of five novels and two story collections. He is the winner of the IMPAC Dublin Literature Prize, Betty Trask Prize, and Somerset Maugham Award. He is Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Nottingham, where he edits The Letters Page.
