When Paul Torday (author of Salmon Fishing in the Yemen) died in 2013, he left behind a half-finished manuscript called The Death of an Owl. His son Piers, already a prize-winning children's author, took on the task of completing it.

In this conversation he talks about the challenges that entailed, and gives some insight into his late father's career, and the way his life changed after Salmon Fishing stormed the world.
