Jenny Erpenbeck with Michel Faber (2015 Event)
If you only read one novel this year, make it The End of Days. A book that takes a series of surprising turns, it confirms German author Jenny Erpenbeck as ‘one of the finest, most exciting authors alive’. That reviewer was fellow novelist Michel Faber, who talks to Erpenbeck about a novel in which the heroine, over the course of a long 20th century life, meets death several times, yet still keeps on going.
