Barcelona comes to Dublin! 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, An Essay on the Novel, 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. The Guardian said the reader, "emerges from this strangely powerful work as from a feverish dream."
