In the summer of 2012 a woman named Eva was found dead in the London townhouse she shared with her husband, Hans K. Rausing. The couple had struggled with drug dependency for years, often under the glare of tabloid headlines. Now, writing with singular clarity and restraint, Hans's sister, the editor and publisher Sigrid Rausing, attempts to understand the conundrum of addiction in Mayhem (Hamish Hamilton), a searingly powerful memoir. Rausing will be in discussion with Max Porter, author of Grief is the Thing with Feathers.
