What History Returns to Us
Zadie Smith has described Isabella Hammad’s debut The Parisian as a 'sublime reading experience'. After the First World War, a young man leaves Palestine in search of stability in France, struggling to escape old ghosts. Meanwhile, Meike Ziervogel’s Flotsam is a ‘beguiling and unsettling’ study of life by Germany's North Sea coast. What emerges from a sea roiled by the Second World War changes everything.They discuss their ideas and the inspiration for their new books with fellow author Karen Campbell.
