Almost a decade late we’ve edited the interview between Marina Warner and Tana McPhee conducted at Channings Hotel. Warner was in Edinburgh for the Book Festival, talking about her book Signs and Wonders. This collection draws together essays written over twenty-five years, offering a wide-ranging retrospective of Warner’s changing ideas on literature and culture – on fiction, drama, religion, language and fairy tale.
Marina Warner is a writer of fiction, criticism, and history. Her works include novels and short stories, as well as studies of art, myths, symbols and fairytales.
