EAST OF WHERE?
Already recognized as one of France’s foremost authors, Mathias Énard came to worldwide attention when his masterpiece Compass was shortlisted for the Man Booker International Prize. Described as ‘one of the finest European novels in recent memory’, it is a sumptuous meditation on the West’s idea of the East. Today, Énard discusses Compass and his time spent living in the Middle East with Turkish journalist Ece Temelkuran.
