LOVE AFTER WAR: Otto de Kat at the Edinburgh Festival

  • The Writer's Retreat, Edinburgh Festival Charlotte Square Edinburgh, Scotland, EH2 4HQ United Kingdom (map)

Two elegant, intimate novels explore the ghosts of 20th century Europe that haunt those trying to move on. Otto de Kat's new novel, The Longest Night, is the story of 96 year old Emma coming to terms with her past. He is joined by Finnish writer Arja Kajermo, a much-loved Dublin-based cartoonist. Her darkly comedic talents are also evident in her debut novel The Iron Age – illustrated by her niece – which draws on her childhood to tell a coming of age fairy tale in post-war Scandinavia.
