Emile Zola: Blood, Sex and Money is about to begin broadcasting. This is the large-scale adaptation of the Rougon-Macquart novels on which I've been lead writer. I've written three episodes of the first week.
If you're in Cardiff, you can get a preview of one of these episodes at the next of the university's BookTalk events. These are free and open to the public. We will preview episode 9 of the first series, which is the climax of the first season. It covers the second half of La Bête Humaine (which you might like to read, but we'll fill in what's happened so you can follow it, in case you haven't). This will be followed by a discussion with Kate Griffiths of Cardiff University (academic consultant on the series), Polly Thomas (producer/director of the episode), and me (writer).
It begins at 6.30pm with a drinks reception at Cardiff University’s School of Optometry and Vision Sciences, Maindy Road, Cardiff CF24 4HQ.
