Neil Griffiths & Richard Powers (2018 Event)

Considered by many to be one of America’s great literary voices, National Book Award winner and Pulitzer Prize finalist Richard Powers presents The Overstory, his seductive and beguiling novel of interlocking stories (now also shortlisted for the 2018 Man Booker Prize). Neil Griffiths’s first book won awards, his second was shortlisted for the Costa Best Novel; in this event, recorded live at the 2018 Edinburgh International Book Festival, he discusses his third, As a God Might Be, a Guardian Book of the Week hailed as ‘an ambitious, generous novel about the limits of faith and love.’
