Welcome to Insurance Covered! The podcast that looks at the inner workings of the insurance industry with the help of expert guests.
We are joined by Novelist and Director William Boyd and we will be discussing insurance in popular culture, more specifically through Armadillo, a novel William published in 1998 where the main protagonist is none other than an insurance loss adjustor.
We start by looking at William’s career as a writer and how he got into novel writing. What started out as a hobby turned into more with William finding early success with his writing. At the age of 28 he had his first novel published ‘A Good Man in Africa’. It was in 1998 that Armadillo was published, a book where the main character Lorimer Black was an insurance adjustor. William goes on to explain the plot (without spoilers).
