The transcendent, unclassifiable novel The Book of Strange New Things is award-winning Michel Faber’s eighth, and his declared last. A pastor is sent to a far-off planet. His job description? "Minister (Christian) to indigenous population". It’s a dystopian tale of love and faith that reviewers have observed is intent on making us kinder. Don’t miss this profound writer on what it is to be human. Faber talks with Paula Morris.
