This panel brings together writers and scholars to consider the implications of ghostwriting in the context of biographical and novelistic practice, publishing, and the media industries. Author and critic Andrew O’Hagan will speak about his new book, The Secret Life, which partly recounts his experience of being commissioned to ghostwrite Julian Assange’s autobiography. He will be joined by Claire Squires, Director of the Stirling Centre for International Publishing and Communication, and biographer and psychotherapist Brett Kahr, author of the ‘posthumous interviews’ Tea with Winnicott and Coffee with Freud.
