Two world-renowned prize winning authors join forces!

Spanish writer Javier Cercas delves with passion and honesty into the most ambiguous aspects of what makes us human in his new novel The Imposter. In The Blind Spot, he considers the most imaginative fiction of the last hundred years. Multi-award winning French novelist Mathias Énard, author of the epic Zone, a 500-page sentence, also lives in Barcelona. His recent book Compass, takes place during a single, sleepless night.

Presented by International Literature Festival Dublin in association with the Instituto Cervantes & the Spanish Embassy, the French Embassy & Alliance Française Dublin.
