Re-writing Europe: Rein Raud in conversation with David Szalay

10 April, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm


Booker prize shortlisted novelist David Szalay joins us to talk to acclaimed Estonian writer Rein Raud. David Szalay’s 2016 book All That Man Is deals with European masculinity in crisis. In it, nine different men in scattered parts of Europe try to understand what it means to be alive. Rein Raud’s work engages with, among other things, Europe as a cultural and political ideal – and as a utopia. His most recent novel in English, The Death of the Perfect Sentence, speaks about “little people” caught in the wheels of history, during the fall of the Soviet power. They will discuss the ways that literature is shaping and reflecting the changes in Europe, and whether fiction can build bridges across the divides that history has created.
