The Seventh Son
Worldwide bestseller and master storyteller Sebastian Faulks returns to BookFest on the 30th anniversary of Birdsong, with his most ambitious literary novel to date.
Confronting prescient issues of surrogacy and medical ethics, the acclaimed author weaves a literary thriller revolving around a megalomaniacal tech entrepreneur and a very special – and unusual – child, resulting in a spectacular examination of what it is to be human.
‘Faulks is beyond doubt a master.’ – Financial Times

Andrew spent 14 years as a writer on BBC2’s QI, and co-hosts the podcast No Such Thing as a Fish. Andrew also writes for Private Eye magazine, and hosts the Eye’s in-house podcast, Page 94.
