We welcome a very unique show from the clever writer, broadcaster and stand-up comedian who brings a funny and refreshing view of the Classics. Her first novel, The Amber Fury, was published to great acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic, she is a regular contributor to BBC TV and Radio 4 and bangs on about Juvenal whenever she gets the chance. She was a judge for the Orange Prize for Fiction, the Man Booker Prize, and the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize.

She is the author of The Amber Fury, which was shortlisted for the Scottish Crime Book of the Year award, and a non-fiction book about Ancient History, The Ancient Guide to Modern Life. She has written and presented two series of the BBC Radio 4 show, Natalie Haynes Stands Up for the Classics. In 2015, she was awarded the Classical Association Prize for her work in bringing Classics to a wider audience.
