Linn Ullmann interviewed by Vendela Vida

In a recent New York Times Magazine profile, novelist Linn Ullmann spoke of wanting to avoid questions about her famous parents, Ingmar Bergman and Liv Ullmann, in discussions of her own prolific writing—until now. Her new novel, “Unquiet,” is built around conversations that an unnamed woman had with her father, a famous filmmaker, at the end of his life. It explores creativity, art, childhood, love, and grief in a mesmerizing, elliptical journey through the taped conversations and the narrator’s memory. Ullmann is interviewed by novelist, journalist, and editor Vendela Vida.
