Nadeem Aslam (2013 event)

Described by Colm Tóibín as ‘one of the most exciting and serious writers working in Britain now’, Nadeem Aslam’s new book will undoubtedly build his reputation still further. The author, twice longlisted for the Man Booker Prize, now gives us The Blind Man’s Garden, an unforgettable story set in Afghanistan and Pakistan after the 9/11 bombings. It’s an evocative novel that sheds new light on a key moment in recent history and in this event, recorded live at the 2013 Edinburgh International Book Festival, he talks to Alex Clark about his work.
