Words from a Wider World: Julián Fuks

Book this event online or email the box office at boxoffice@creativefolkestone.org.uk

Julián Fuks, one of Brazil’s rising literary talents, has won or been nominated for a clutch of prestigious prizes and seen his work translated into more than 10 languages. His novel, Resistance, is an examination of family, identity, belonging and different forms of exile; his new novel, Occupation (translated by Daniel Hahn) is published later this year. A kind of kind of sequel to Resistance, and his second book to appear in English, it’s narrative alternates between the writer’s conversations with refugees occupying a building in downtown São Paulo, his father’s sickness, and his wife’s pregnancy.

In this conversation, Julián Fuks discusses how the past year in Brazil has affected his own life and writing and how the terrible death toll has affected his fellow citizens.

Julián was born in São Paulo in 1981 and is the son of Argentinian parents.


This is one beautiful book.
