Esther Freud

Save to my articles

In the two decades since her first book, Hideous Kinky, was made into a film starring Kate Winslet, and she was named one of the UK’s top young novelists by literary magazine Granta, the actress-turned-writer has penned six more bestsellers. In this issue she recalls the journeys that influenced her life, including a trip to Italy with her father, the painter Lucian Freud, and a sojourn in South Africa with her actor husband, David Morrissey. Her latest book, Mr Mac and Me, is based on the life of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
