We welcome back Helen Mort, best known for her award winning poetry, to talk about her brilliant debut novel, Black Car Burning.

Published to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the Hillsborough Disaster, it is a novel about trust and trauma, fear and falling, and focuses on the relationship between two women set against the backdrop of urban Sheffield and the natural landscape of the Peak District. Black Car Burning refers to a notoriously difficult climb on Stanage which becomes an obsession for one of the women.
