Michel Faber: Undying Love

Event Details

  • The guest on 22nd January is the internationally celebrated author Michel Faber. He will be talking about his new book, Undying Love.


    Interviewer: Ernest van der Kwast


    Shortly before his masterly novel The Book of Strange New Things (2015) appeared, Michel Faber’s wife died. Undying Love is a monument to the memory of Eva, who died after a six year long battle with cancer. Faber wrote the poems in the first year after her death, completely broken by his loss, with words as his only solace. In his uninhibited and exceptionally honest poetry, Michel Faber makes you feel what it means to meet the love of your life - and to have to say farewell to her.


    ‘Michel Faber addressed these love poems to his wife after her death. They are lucid, tender and wise, and they pulse with this fine writer's intelligence.’ – Ian McEwan


    ‘Precisely because the writer doesn’t lose his sense of humour and ability to put things into perception, despite all the misery, Undying Love is a collection of poetry that fascinates and offers comfort in the face of the inevitable.’ – Trouw


    Boek & Meester is a new, monthly literature programme. A top national or international author is the focus of every show. The core of Boek & Meester is an enthusiastic conversation but there are also readings and the opportunity to put your questions to the writer.


    Doors open at 7:30 PM. Programme in English.
