Rachel Kushner (2018 Event)

Rachel Kushner’s much-anticipated follow-up novel to the dazzlingly successful The Flamethrowers is The Mars Room, a fearless and brutally honest portrayal of Romy, a woman starting a double life sentence in a US correctional facility, leaving her young son with her mother. In this event, filmed live at the 2018 Edinburgh International Book Festival, we welcome Kushner back to Scotland to discuss her latest book (which has subsequently been shortlisted for the 2018 Man Booker Prize) with American-Mexican novelist and human rights activist Jennifer Clement.
