Mathias Énard & Chris Power: The Annual Banquet of the Gravediggers’ Guild

Mathias Énard’s latest novel The Annual Banquet of the Gravediggers' Guild (tr. Frank Wynne) takes us to the marshlands of South West France in a Rabelaisian celebration of life, love and death. Juan Gabriel Vasquez writes of him ‘Every novel by Mathias Énard reminds me of the reasons why I read fiction. He is ambitious, erudite, full of life, and a wonderful stylist to boot. He is one of the great novelists of our time.'

He read from his work and was in conversation about it with Chris Power.
