Michel Faber (2016 Event)

The acclaimed author of Under the Skin and The Book of Strange New Things reads from a collection of deeply moving poems entitled Undying in this event recorded live at the 2016 Edinburgh International Book Festival. In tender, bittersweet verse, Michel Faber grieves for his wife Eva who died in 2014 after a six year battle with cancer. His fearless poems present brutally honest meditations on Eva’s death – and how it feels to say a long, heartbroken, impotent goodbye. Chaired by Richard Holloway
