An evening with Sebastian Faulks

Event start date

Location

Chorleywood War Memorial Hall, Common Road, Chorleywood, Rickmansworth, UK

Event description

Join us for an evening with Sebastian Faulks, bestselling author of Birdsong and Human Traces, as he discusses his highly anticipated new novel Snow Country.

1914: Young Anton Heideck has arrived in Vienna, eager to make his name as a journalist. While working part-time as a private tutor, he encounters Delphine, a woman who mixes startling candour with deep reserve. Entranced by the light of first love, Anton feels himself blessed. Until his country declares war on hers.

1927: For Lena, life with a drunken mother in a small town has been impoverished and cold. She is convinced she can amount to nothing until a young lawyer, Rudolf Plischke, spirits her away to Vienna. But the capital proves unforgiving. Lena leaves her metropolitan dream behind to take a menial job at the snow-bound sanatorium, the Schloss Seeblick.

1933: Still struggling to come terms with the loss of so many friends on the Eastern Front, Anton, now an established writer, is commissioned by a magazine to visit the mysterious Schloss Seeblick. In this place of healing, on the banks of a silvery lake, where the depths of human suffering and the chances of redemption are explored, two people will see each other as if for the first time.

*Copies of Snow Country will be available to purchase on the night for the special price of £15 (RRP £20)*
