Ken Follett in conversation with Juan Carlos Pérez

Arequipa 2021, 

Ken Follett is one of the most read authors in the English language and has captivated an extraordinary number of readers around the world in his 35-year writing career: his books have sold over 160 million copies in at least 30 languages. He is perhaps best known for his historical novels, from the publication of Eye of the Needle, and his acclaimed work The Pillars of the Earth, one of the world’s most read novels, to the recent prequel, The Evening and the Morning. This distinguished writer has recently caused a commotion in the literary world with his new novel Never, which takes the history of the First World War as the inspiration for a hypothetical Third World War. The protagonist, Tamara, aims to stop the conflict from a CIA base in North Africa, juggling with actors that range from local terrorist groups to the US President. In conversation with the BBC journalist, Juan Carlos Pérez.
