Raising the Dead - History & Fiction



History and fiction have long made strange bedfellows. Join four of our finest writers, all of whom have, in very different ways, used fiction to interrogate history.

Javier Cercas’ best-selling writings have ingeniously explored the legacies of the Vietnam War and the Spanish Civil War; Ron Rash’s lyrical narratives have long mined the troubled history of the American South; Kate Grenville’s award-winning trilogy about life in colonial Australia has won her legions of fans the world over; and Jenny Erpenbeck’s poetic fictions gracefully engage with Europe’s most enduring ghosts.

Join them for readings and in conversation with David Marr.
