Authors from around the world, and authors taking us on journeys around the world: It’s one of the purposes of the International Festival of Authors and one of its great benefits. It’s also the theme of the reading we’ll be attending tonight and about which we’ve been excited since the IFOA programme was released. Tash Aw, Andrea De Carlo, Jason Guriel, and Colm Tóibín take us to Indonesia and back, and do so in some of the best prose being published in English right now.
