Chigozie Obioma & Simon Sylvester (2015 Event)

Chigozie Obioma’s thrillingly assured debut novel The Fishermen is set in small-town Nigeria, while Simon Sylvester’s seductive debut The Visitors unfolds on a remote Scottish island. Yet despite their disparate locations, these stories are united by the presence of mysterious outsider figures, whose unsettling effect on the community drives the tension. These two highly promising authors share their ideas with Economist literary editor Fiammetta Rocco in this event, recorded live at the Edinburgh International Book Festival.
