Join master storyteller Sebastian Faulks as he discusses his latest novel Snow Country, along with his wider body of work with Antonia Senior, book critic, The Times.

Sweeping across Europe as it recovers from one war and hides its face from the coming of another, Snow Country is a landmark novel of exquisite yearnings, dreams of youth and the sanctity of hope. In elegant, shimmering prose, Sebastian Faulks has produced a work of timeless resonance.

Snow Country is set in 1933 and looks back to the Vienna of Klimt and Freud; and to Europe in the shadow of one war and on the brink of another. We meet Lena, a young woman searching for an anchor in the world, and Anton, an aspiring journalist who has never quite recovered from the loss of his first love. In a masterfully woven narrative, Faulks tells a powerful story of love and destiny against significant historical moments.

Sebastian Faulks became a full-time writer in 1991, before this he worked as a journalist. His books include A Possible LifeHuman TracesOn Green Dolphin StreetEnglebyBirdsongA Week in December and Where My Heart Used to Beat

Antonia Senior is a writer and journalist. She has written three novels, two set during the English Civil War and one in 12th-century Scotland. She has twice been the chair of judges for the Historical Writers’ Association’s Gold Crown Awards for the best historical fiction books of the year
