Barnett’s portrait is unusually perceptive, a mixture of evocative detail and sharp reportage that feel fresh to read
— Sunday Times

Combining literature and music Greatest Hits is both an engaging second novel, by Laura Barnett, and a collection of songs by Mercury-nominated singer-songwriter, Kathryn Williams. Featuring the fictional singer-songwriter Cass Wheeler, each chapter of the novel starts with a song, recalling a different part of Cass’s troubled life.

In this special event Laura will talk about the inspiration behind Greatest Hits, while Kathryn will entertain us with songs based on words from the book.

Has a wisdom and a harmony that are satisfying
