Patrick Gale, A Place Called Winter

Patrick Gale was born on the Isle of Wight and now lives on a farm near Land’s End. One of the country’s best-loved novelists, he’s the author of 19 books including A Perfectly Good Man, Tree Surgery For Beginners, Rough Music and the Richard and Judy bestseller Notes From An Exhibition. The Observer described him as ‘A writer with heart, soul… one whose company you relish and trust.’

Patrick’s latest novel, A Place Called Winter, is an epic and breathtaking story that transports the reader from turn-of-the-century, Edwardian England to the newly colonised Canadian prairies. Loosely based on a real-life mystery in Patrick’s own family history, it charts the journey of a privileged and extremely shy man that is forced to abandon his wife and child, emigrate to a remote and unforgiving place called Winter and fight for survival.

Hear Patrick talk with Carol Ackroyd about his remarkable story of love, sanity and self-discovery.
