In conversation with David Samuels
Wine reception to follow

On October 28th, 1949, the Constellation, newest crown jewel in the Air France fleet, disappeared from radar and crashed into a mountain some seventy-five kilometers from the runway. No one survived. In his debut novel, Adrien Bosc chases the details of the “how” — how thirty-eight lives came to an end in the side of Redondo Mountain — and also seeks to answer “why?” Bosc is the founder and publisher of Éditions du sous-sol (Basement Editions) as well as deputy director at the French publisher Le Seuil. Constellation, won the prestigious Grand Prix du roman de l'Académie française and was a bestseller in France. He discusses his work with David Samuels, Tablet Magazine's literary editor and contributing editor at Harper’s Magazine.
