Geraldine Brooks reveals: 'I get many of my best ideas in graveyards. The idea for my very first novel - the story that tipped me off the ledge of factual journalism into the free fall of fiction - came from my habit of communing with the dead'. Brooks goes on to discuss the gravestone inscription in the village of Eyam that gave rise to her award-winning novel Year of Wonders: A Novel of the Plague.
