Sebastian Faulks


Internationally-renowned author Sebastian Faulks has achieved an enviable blend of literary merit and commercial success, best-known for his French trilogy including the tour-de-force novel of the First World War, Birdsong. Join him in conversation with author and JFOW Patron Cathy Rentzenbrink.

Snow Country tells the story of Lena, a girl born with nothing but her own strength of character to an alcoholic mother in a small town in southern Austria in 1906 and Anton, the restless son of a bourgeois family who sets out to make his fortune in pre-First World War Vienna.
