Authors line up for Edinburgh Festival
31.07.07 | Alison Bone
The Telegraph rounds up the literary highlights of the Edinburgh Festival, which boasts Alan Bennett ("funny on the page, funnier read aloud, and funniest read aloud by Alan Bennett"), Margaret Atwood ("as spry, fierce and astringent as ever") and Richard Dawkins ("apparently he doesn’t believe in God").
Other hot tickets include Ian McEwan, "a bigger brand than the beer", Nick Cohen, A L Kennedy and Norman Mailer, the Telegraph writes.
