Award-winning author Sebastian Faulks joins The Daily Circuit Monday, Jan. 28 to talk about his latest novel "A Possible Life," which follows a collection of characters across time and continents.
In her review for the Sunday Times, Lucy Atkins sums it up:
"A Possible Life" is divided into five sections, each set in a different era and country with apparently no connection between the pieces. It is structured like a book of short stories. It reads like a book of stories. But it is a novel. And the challenge, here, is to work out why.
Faulks himself explains:
There are little bits of connections between the five sections, but it's really going to be a bit like listening to a symphony in five movements. Or, if you like, an LP, an album, CD, in which the tracks are separate but the whole thing adds up to more than the sum of its parts.
