Sebastian Faulks worked as a journalist before becoming a full-time writer in 1991. His bestselling novel ‘Birdsong’ has sold over 5 million copies, and was adapted into a TV series starring Eddie Redmayne. Since then he has written fourteen novels, all of which have been bestsellers. His latest ‘Snow Country’ is the novel he wanted to write for ten years. It’s set in 1933 and looks back to the Vienna of Klimt and Freud; and to Europe in the shadow of one war, and on the brink of another.
