Two of today’s most talked about memoirs. Miranda Doyle’s A Book of Untruths charts her upbringing by sensationally dysfunctional parents whilst Tara Westover’s Educated vividly depicts her upbringing by survivalist parents in the Idaho Mountains and her escape into education at the late age of 17. As Tolstoy writes in Anna Karenina ‘All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way’. Chaired by Erica Wagner, writer and critic
