Anne Serre: The Unknowability of Others image

Celebrated French author Anne Serre brings her new novel A Leopard-Skin Hat to the Festival. Already hailed ‘a masterpiece of simplicity, emotion and elegance’ by Le Point, A Leopard-Skin Hat is the story of the narrator’s relationship with his close childhood friend as she slips away from him, suffering from a psychological disorder. Joined in conversation by Lee Randall, Serre discusses the novel’s depiction of care, friendship, and loss.
