Sebastian Faulks is one of Britain’s most respected writers, best known for novels such as Birdsong, Charlotte Gray, and Human Traces. He returns to Austria, the country of Human Traces, for his latest novel, Snow Country, in which he looks back at the Vienna of Klimt and Freud and forward to the shadow that is starting to fall over Europe. It’s an intensely personal story, focussing on Lena, a spirited girl born with nothing and Anton, a man of passion and self-doubt. With rich characters, and strong narrative, and themes of human frailty and longing, it’s a story that will stay with you long after the last page is read.
Stephanie Merritt is an English critic and writer, and a former Deputy Literary Editor of The Observer. A bestselling novelist her books include the psychological thriller, While You Sleep, and a series of historical thrillers featuring Giordano Bruno, written under the pseudonym, S J Parris.
