Lucie Elven & Irene Solà: High Drama at Literary Summit

Mountains can be symbols – of human insignificance, natural drama, solitude and escape. Both Lucie Elven’s The Weak Spot and Irene Solà’s When I Sing, Mountains Dance, take place in mountainous landscapes to powerful dramatic effect. Elven’s novel is set on a remote mountaintop town, while Solà’s (translated by Mara Faye Lethem) unfolds amid the peaks of the Catalan Pyrenees. With Claire Urquhart they discuss how they use the unearthly power of the mountains to evoke superstitions and fears.
