Author of The Imposters in conversation with Ian Brown
Your literary enjoyment is doubled when two renowned Canadian authors share the stage! Award-winning author and journalist Ian Brown interviews international bestselling author Tom Rachman about his writing career and the genesis of his newest book, The Imposters.
The Imposters is the compelling story of a chameleonic writer and the indelible characters in her orbit. It's a novel about love, the power of art, and what we leave behind. Dora Frenhofer, a once successful but now aging and embittered novelist, knows her mind is going. She is determined, however, to finish her final book, and reverse her fortunes, before time runs out. Alone in her London home during the pandemic, she creates and is, in turn, created by the fascinating and real characters from her own life.
Tom Rachman was born in London in 1974 and raised in Vancouver. He attended the University of Toronto and Columbia Journalism School, then worked as a journalist for the Associated Press in New York and Rome and for the International Herald Tribune in Paris. His first novel, The Imperfectionists, was an international bestseller, translated into twenty-five languages. He lives in London.
Ian Brown is an award-winning author and a feature writer for The Globe and Mail. He began life as a business reporter at the Financial Post and Maclean's Magazine. He has founded a publishing company, Invisible Books, an online magazine, Open Letters, and worked in radio at the CBC and NPR.
