Erwan Larher was enjoying a rock concert in Paris' Bataclan Theater on November 13, 2015, when the firing started in what is now known as one of the most gruesome terror attacks in Europe. In this genre-bending, deeply moving and unexpected memoir, Larher reflects on what the attack meant to him and to others with humour and passion. Larher's "The Book I Didn't Want To Write" was an instant bestseller in France, and has received critical acclaim across Europe.

In conversation with music critic Carl Wilson, author of the groundbreaking book, Let's Talk About Love.
