Enrique Vila-Matas in New York City

Enrique Vila-Matas in New York City

The Spanish author presents Dublinesque and Escribir Paris at various locations in New York City.

In Dublinesque, a witty and poignant novel, Vila-Matas traces a majestic journey connecting the worlds of James Joyce and Samuel Beckett with great literature and the difficulties faced by literary authors, publishers, and good readers as they struggle to survive in an age where literature is losing influence.

Along with translator Anne McLean, Vila-Matas will present the novel itself and a simultaneous translation of the work. The author will be accompanied by American writer Paul Auster in select locations. He will also be joined by Sylvia Molloy to present their latest book, Escribir París.

Book presentation of Dublinesque and Q&A
On October 23rd at 6 pm at the Instituto Cervantes New York.
Enrique Vila-Matas will introduce the English translation of his book Dublinesque with American author Paul Auster. There will be also a Q&A with the audience.
Synopsis: One night, a renowned and now retired literary publisher has a vivid dream that takes place in Dublin, a city he’s never visited. The central scene of the dream is a funeral in the era of Ulysses. The publisher would give anything to know if an unidentified character in his dream is the great author he always wanted to meet, or the ghostly angel who abandoned him during childhood. As the days go by, he will come to understand that his vision of the end of an era was prophetic.
