We welcome back one of the UK’s leading broadcasters, Jeremy Vine to talk about his novel, The Diver and The Lover. His compelling story of love, art, politics and sacrifice is set against the backdrop of post-civil war Catalonia and based on real events surrounding one of Salvador Dali’s most famous paintings. It is 1951 and sisters Ginny and Meredith have travelled from England to Spain in order to help Meredith recover from a terrible trauma. They discover that the renowned artist is staying in nearby Port Lligat. Meredith is fascinated by modern art and longs to meet the famous surrealist. Dali is embarking on an ambitious new work, but his model has refused to pose. A replacement is found and the lives of the characters become entangled as art, ego, loyalty and the heightened politics of Franco’s Spain threaten to undo the fragile bonds that have been forged.

Jeremy Vine presents The Jeremy Vine Show on BBC Radio 2. In 2018 he took over Channel 5’s The Wright Stuff, now simply called Jeremy Vine. Jeremy is also an accomplished journalist and writer, with two nonfiction books published in recent years.
