An Evening with Eduardo Halfon

Room: G-009 | 147, rue de Grenelle, 75007 Paris
Thursday, November 14, 2019 - 18:30 to 20:00

The Center for Writers & Translators is delighted to host Eduardo Halfon for a conversation about what The New York Review of Books has referred to as the "obsessions" of his writing: "the legacy of violence and mass murder in Europe and Latin America; the frequency and facility with which the past intrudes upon the present; the quixotic effort to separate family myth from historical fact; and the ways in which pleasure—food, love, sex, humor, cigarettes, beer, the beauty of nature, and the surprises offered by travel—consoles us." Eduardo Halfon is the author of fourteen books of fiction published in Spanish. His latest, Mourning, published in English by Bellevue Literary Press in 2018, received the Edward Lewis Wallant Award (US), the Prix du Meilleur Livre Étranger (France), and the Premio de las Librerías de Navarra (Spain). In 2018, he was awarded the Guatemalan National Prize in Literature, his country’s highest literary honor. He currently lives in Paris and holds a fellowship from the Columbia Institute for Ideas and Imagination.
