About This Event

Sebastian Faulks, CBE, author of best-selling novels including Charlotte Gray and Birdsong, comes to the Proms to talk about his new novel Paris Echo. It tells the story of Hannah, a 31-year-old American, who is researching the lives of French women during the German occupation of Paris in 1940-1944. Set against this is the tale of Tariq, a 19-year-old boy who has run away from his home in Morocco, searching for sex and adventure. Does history and a greater cultural awareness help us lead better lives?

Edited version broadcast on BBC Radio 3 during tonight's interval.
