Chris Power and Alex Clark: A Lonely ManThursday 1 April 2021, 7 p.m. · 56 minutes
Chris Power’s short story collection Mothers was shortlisted for several literary prizes. His first novel A Lonely Man (Faber) is a powerful, menacing exploration of the nature of truth, fabrication and identity. ‘If you're a fan of existential crises’ writes Jon McGregor, ‘family dramas, Putin-era paranoias, and Bolaño-style multiplicities, and want to see them woven into one taut novel, you're in the right place.’
Chris Power was in conversation about A Lonely Man with the critic Alex Clark.
