Author Deborah Moggach talks to HGS U3A

Deborah Moggach with a copy of her novel

Despite her very busy schedule, promoting her latest novel, The Carer, Deborah Moggach was available to give a talk to our U3A Topical Talk in February. Speaking with great enthusiasm to a packed hall of members, Deborah reflected firstly about her career and her life experiences. As the author of over 20 novels and best known for her publications, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Tulip Fever,which were subsequently made into films; there were many stories and incidents to relate, some of which were highly amusing.

She also explained about her experiences with older people, indeed her own parents which led her to write her most recent novel The Carer. Deborah’s books were on sale after the event and sold out. Indeed, one of my friends bought me as a gift The Carer, which is a splendid read with interesting twists in the plot and some very humorous moments; so thoroughly recommended.
