Front Row | Naomi Alderman

Based on The War of the Worlds  by H.G. Wells

And we conclude our series of specially commissioned introductions to some of the books on the GCSE English literature syllabus with novelist and games writer Naomi Alderman, whose feminist sci fi novel The Power won the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction in 2017. So it's appropriate that tonight she'll be talking about HG Wells' trailblazing science fiction classic The War of the Worlds.
