A chat with John Irving, on the 11th of April
The North American writer will be talking to Antonio Orejudo in the Jaume Fuster Public Library
The translation of John Irving’s latest novel In One Person has recently arrived on our bookshelves. Published in Catalan by Edicions 62 under the title En una sola persona, and by Tusquets in Spanish under the title Personas como yo, the thirteenth novel by the North American writer speaks about desire, sexual identity and unfulfilled love.
Through sheer effort, John Irving has earned his place among the most important living writers. Like Paul Auster, Irving has managed to find his own niche between quality and popularity, resulting in excellent sales. He is the author of many well-known stories and novels such as The World According To Garp, A Widow For One Year, or The Cider House Rules (he won the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay in the film of the same name directed by Lasse Hallström). Irving has also been awarded a number of international literary prizes and each new novel is a prominent publishing event.
On the 11th of April, at 7 pm, we will have the opportunity to witness a conversation
with the renowned critic and writer from Madrid, Antonio Orejudo, in the Jaume Fuster Public Library. Early attendance is advisable as seating is limited.
