Bae Suah in conversation
Friday 25 October 2019, 19:00 – 21:00
Level 6 | Foyles | 107 Charing Cross Road | London WC2H 0DT
Tickets: £5 Standard | Book tickets
Drawing upon the seven stories that make up this haunting collection, Bae Suah will explore the recurring themes of her work—from her interest in narrative digression and multiple storylines to the unsettling of societal norms. She will also discuss how German literature has influenced her work as both a novelist and translator.
Bae Suah is an award-winning author and translator who has published more than a dozen short story collections and novels. Her novel Nowhere to be Found was longlisted for the PEN Translation Prize and the Best Translated Book Awards. She has translated the work of major authors within the canon of German language literature such as WG Sebald, Franz Kafka and Jenny Erpenbeck.
The event will be followed by a Q+A and a book signing.
