LUNG cHAts Live with Ian Rankin

LUNG cHAts is a video series brought to you by Lung Ha Theatre Company, where Lung Ha members interview high-profile arts figures in Scotland.

In this very special live episode, Gavin Yule and Nicola Tuxworth chat to Edinburgh-based author Ian Rankin, who has recently re-released his 1990 novel, Westwind. Ian’s first Rebus novel was published in 1987, and the Rebus books are now translated into thirty-six languages and are bestsellers worldwide. Rankin is a No.1 bestseller in the UK and has received the OBE for services to literature, opting to receive the prize in his home city of Edinburgh, where he lives with his partner and two sons.

The conversation covers everything from bringing Rebus to life on stage, to how Ian’s life, family and experience of ageing shapes his characters lives.
