French writer Jean-Baptiste Del Amo will be coming to the UK for the first time to discuss his exciting novel Animalia, rewarded by the Prix du Livre Inter in 2017 and translated into English by Frank Wynne. A powerful novel about man’s desire to conquer nature and the transmission of violence from one generation to the next, Animalia retraces the history of five generations through the cataclysm of war, economic disasters, and the emergence of a brutal industrialism. He will be in conversation with Coventry-based Sarah Moss, whose powerful Ghost Wall is just out in the UK and The Tidal Zone has been translated into French as Après la fin (Actes Sud). The conversation will be chaired by Cal Revely-Calder (The Telegraph).
