Award-winning author Sebastian Faulks speaks to Rana Mitter about his new multi-layered novel, A Possible Life, which explores the chaos created by love, separation and missed opportunities. Sir John Elliott’s book History In The Making tracks the course of the discipline in relation to national and transnational histories. And with a look at China, Rana talks to filmmaker Sun Shuyun about Transcendence, the 3D film about rock star Cui Jian, and author Hsiao-Hung Pai tells Rana the stories from China’s rural migrants.
