From his controversial biography of Columbus to the audacious sweep of his historical work The Americas, the verve and authority of London-born Armesto's writing is without parallel. Javier Cercas has won the 2004 Independent Foreign Fiction Prize for his masterful novel, The Soldiers of Salamis. Epic in tone, the novel questions the subject of heroism in thrilling historical detail. Together they discuss history, memory and the relationship between fact and fiction on their writing.
