Natalie Haynes, writer, Radio 4 broadcaster and comedian, takes on Sophocles in her second novel, The Children of Jocasta. A new telling of an ancient story, with women to the fore, The Observer finds it ‘vivid and affecting’. To accompany the book Natalie will present a humorous history of Ancient Greece which she is calling Honour Among Thebes. We love it already.
