Book Talks - Session 13 - Ajai P Mangattu
July 17 (Saturday) @ 3pm
Septology(The Other Name & I is Another) by Jon Fosse
Written in hypnotic prose that shifts between the first and third person, Septology(The Other Name & I is Another) calls into question concrete notions around subjectivity and the self. What makes us who we are? And why do we lead one life and not another? Through flashbacks, Fosse deftly explores the convergences and divergences in the lives of both Asles, slowly building towards a decisive encounter between them both. A writer at the zenith of his career, with The Other Name, the first two volumes in his Septology, Fosse presents us with an indelible and poignant exploration of the human condition that will endure as his masterpiece.
