Podcast Episode #116 – Frances Wilson and Nigel Hamilton
This week we feature a special episode with BIO’s 2022 Plutarch Award-winner Frances Wilson. Her latest book, Burning Man: The Trials of D. H. Lawrence, published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux, is considered to be an electrifying and revelatory new biography of the English writer. Wilson, a London-based critic, journalist, and author of several award-winning nonfiction works, was interviewed by Nigel Hamilton, a British-born, American-based biographer, academic, and broadcaster. He is the author of numerous biographies, including three volumes on the life and times of Franklin D. Roosevelt, a two-volume examination of Winston Churchill, and a best-selling exploration of a young John F. Kennedy. A former BIO president and chair of BIO’s 2022 Plutarch Award Committee, Nigel Hamilton interviewed Frances Wilson during BIO’s virtual Book Club meeting on September 17, 2022.
