Lincoln College: Oakeshott Room

Author and singer-songwriter Alba Arikha talks about Where to Find Me, her new novel about identity, loss and rebirth, and plays the piano and performs some of her songs.

The novel opens in 1980s Notting Hill where teenager Hannah Karalis becomes fascinated by her elderly neighbour, Flora Dobbs. An improbable friendship is cut short when Flora suddenly leaves. Almost 20 years later Hannah receives a bequest from Flora, including a black book that sets her off on a quest to find the ghosts in Flora’s past. The story ranges from Paris to British Mandate Palestine and modern London.

Arikha is the daughter of the Israeli painter Avigdor Arikha. She is the author of Muse; Walking on Ice; a memoir of her adolescence in Paris Major/Minor; and a narrative poem Soon. Arikha has recorded two CDs of songs, Si j’ai aimé and Dans les rues de Paris, and has performed in Paris and London. Here she talks to journalist and reviewer for the FT Suzi Feay.

This event lasts one hour 15 minutes
