Deborah Moggach is a British novelist and screenwriter with 20 novels to her name, most recently The Carer (Tinder Press) and The Black Dress (Headline Review), the latter of which will be published in July 2021.
In this online event, part of our series Relationships in Literature: the Writing Series at Tavistock Relationships, Moggach will talk about her life in writing. She is known for her sharp, witty novels that capture the complexities of family relationships in a variety of forms – most recently in relation to the challenges of later life.
Tulip Fever (1999), her critically acclaimed love story set in 17th-century Amsterdam, established her reputation. She went on to achieve huge success with These Foolish Things (2004), a bestseller that also found success on the screen as The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, a romantic comedy about a group of elderly people who relocate to India.
Her latest novels find her at the height of her powers. The Carer is a social comedy about care for the elderly, and a nuanced exploration of sibling as well as marital dynamics. The Black Dress is a darkly funny novel about what it means to be alone.
This online event, held using Zoom, will feature Deborah Moggach in discussion with Lorna Robinson, psychotherapist and head of events at Tavistock Relationships. There will also be the opportunity for attendees to ask questions, and for a group discussion to take place.
