Spanning decades and diasporas, Madeleine Thien’s stories “remind us what fiction can do” (New Statesman). She takes the UWRF stage to discuss the Booker-shortlisted Do Not Say We Have Nothing, an enchanting and wrenching novel of revolutionary idealism, music and silence, and a body of work both grand in scope and exquisite in detail.
