08.05.2003 - Michel Faber

Michel Faber (1960) was born in The Hague, grew up in Australia and currently lives in Scotland. His debut collection of stories Some Rain Must Fall received critical acclaim and won several awards. Since then, Faber has belonged to the cream of the crop of international modern literature. The first of Faber’s startling novels to be published, Under the Skin, as well as the collection of stories The Fahrenheit Twins also have received a lot of praise. But Faber’s magnum opius was his 2002 publication of The Crimson Petal and the White. A bestseller in the USA, Italy, France, Holland and Belgium, and a steady seller in most other countries.
