Margaret Drabble spoke on her novel The Dark Flood Rises at the 2016 Slightly Foxed Readers’ Day.

Francesca Stubbs holds our hand as we take a walk through old age and death. Fran brings us to drinks with her dear friends, dropping off mouth-watering suppers for Claude, her ex-husband, warm and cosy in his infirmity. She visits her daughter, Poppet, holed up as the waters rise in a sodden West Country, and texts her son Christopher in Lanzarote, as he deals with the estate of his shockingly deceased girlfriend. The novel is by turns dark and joyous, hilarious and heartbreaking, and asks us what makes a good life, and a good death.
