Press during European tour for ‘Flight Behaviour’ offers readers new insights

Barbara Kingsolver has returned from a weeks-long tour in Europe for the paperback release of “Flight Behaviour,” published by Faber & Faber in the United Kingdom and Rivages in France.

The English portion of the tour included engagements for the Hay Festival of Literature in Wales; the Charleston Festival in Sussex; the London Literature Festival at the Southbank Centre; and the Guardian Book Club in London. Additionally, Kingsolver attended The Women’s Prize for Fiction events, as one of six short-listed authors. (The prize was formerly known as The Orange Prize.)

Following are links to some of the press coverage during the tour: The Herald Scotland; The Guardian; and the Guardian Book Club — Barbara’s contribution here, and accompanying pieces, here.

In France, interviews were scheduled to meet magazine publishing deadlines, and articles will appear at about the time of Flight Behavior’s release there. Readers interested in the French translation of the novel should watch for the press items and the Rivages edition to be available in September.
