Natalie Haynes on A Thousand Ships - shortlisted for the 2020 Women’s Prize For Fiction. As Front Row continues our interviews with authors on the shortlist, Natalie Haynes talks to us about her novel which tells the stories of The Trojan War from the perspective of the female characters. Literary critic Alex Clark reviews the winner of the International Booker Prize 2020, which was announced this evening. And Agatha Christie’s lost play, The Lie – a very personal 1920s domestic drama which lay unread until discovered by drama director Julius Green, and which he has turned into a radio play for Radio 4 this weekend. Julius Green joins Tom Sutcliffe to tell us about The Lie and how it came to be abandoned and then rediscovered. Presenter: Tom Sutcliffe Producer: Sarah Johnson Studio Manager: Giles Aspen
