Elizabeth Macneal and Naomi Wood

Two powerful works of fiction set in times of radical change for art and society. Elizabeth MacNeal’s debut 'The Doll Factory', set in London in 1851, brings to life rivalries, ambitions and secrets in a world that the Pre-Raphaelite brotherhood was intent on changing. 'The Hiding Game' by Naomi Wood enters the Bauhaus art school in 1922, as political tensions escalate in Germany and the Bauhaus comes under threat. Host Daniel Hahn.

Elizabeth Macneal is a writer and potter. 'The Doll Factory', her debut novel, won the Caledonia Novel Award 2018.
