Georgina Godwin meets Richard Powers, an acclaimed writer with an array of awards under his belt – including a Pulitzer prize for fiction. While at university, he switched from majoring in physics to English literature but science has remained a central part of his writing. His new novel ‘Bewilderment’ was shortlisted for this year’s Booker Prize. It uses fiction to explore urgent questions of how we treat the environment and just how close we might be to the edge.
