We Are Made of Earth

Writer Panos Karnezis reads from and discusses his new novel, We Are Made of Earth, with author and journalist Nadia Marks.

We Are Made of Earth is a skilled blend of seductive linguistic simplicity and luminous moral depth, a timeless story of connection and disorientation, longing and self-doubt, as well as a profound comment on the emotional cost of peace and security.

Born in Greece in 1967, Panos Karnezis moved to England in 1992. He is the author of five previous books: Little Infamies (2002, a collection of connected short stories), and the novels The Maze (2004, shortlisted for the 2004 Whitbread First Novel Award), The Birthday Party (2007, shortlisted for the Encore Award 2009), The Convent (2010) and The Fugitives (2015).

Organised by Myriad Editions and the Hellenic Centre.
