Auður Ava Ólafsdóttir & Shaun Prescott

Existential Safaris

The novel’s unique ability to get inside a character’s head is put to great use by Auður Ava Ólafsdóttir in Hotel Silence, when a man sets out on his final journey and ends up at a strange hotel. Similarly, Shaun Prescott’s The Town is the portrayal of a remote town in Australia’s New South Wales. In both novels, strange locations allow the characters to gain a sense of perspective on their lives. Chaired by Daniel Hahn.
