'Faulks is beyond doubt a master' Financial Times

Celebrate the opening night of BookFest with one of Britain’s foremost novelists, broadcasters and all round literary superstars. With his trademark combination of the literary and popular Sebastian Faulks will be discussing love, life, and the singular ideas that drive his novels.

Faulks is a writer with immense intellectual energy and verve who is able to tackle the big ideas in ways that are neither drily intellectual nor brashly populist but magically both. Discover his motivations, inspirations and disciplines in an evening of humour, warmth and the odd splash of the high brow.
