Podcast listeners will know Elizabeth Day from her fantastic series How to Fail and her bestselling book of the same name.
The chart-topping podcast celebrates things that haven’t gone right but ironically can’t seem to step a foot wrong, as its featured a host of big names including Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Gloria Steinem, and was named Rising Star Award at the 2019 British Podcast Awards.
Elizabeth writes a column for The Mail on Sunday and her past novels: The Party, Paradise City, Home Fires and Scissors, Paper, Stone have picked up several awards.
Her latest book Magpie is a psychological thriller about motherhood, jealousy and struggles with fertility.
We poured Elizabeth a glass of our award-winning, oak-fermented Chardonnay La Voûte and spoke to her about the novel.
We discussed her writing habits, including making her home feel like a coffee shop, and how her taste in wine has improved over the years.

Laithwaites is proud to be sponsoring Henley Literary Festival for an 11th consecutive year.
