I write as I live | Conversation with Dany Laferrière

I write as I live | Conversation with Dany Laferrière

A Hawaiian-born Quebecois writer and member of the French Academy, Dany Laferrière is not just a big name in contemporary Francophone literature, but also emblematic of the universality of the French language. He is the author of more than twenty books published worldwide.

His books, written in the first person, evoke slices of his life, thoughts, moments of tragedy and of grace. His style is poised, poetic, always changing and full of mirth.

The Enigma of the return, published in China by Shanghai 99, earned him the Medicis Prize in 2009. His book, The nearly lost art of doing nothing, is scheduled for publication by Sea-Sky (Haitian) on March 10, 2017.

This conversation with Dany Laferrière will touch upon his life, his works, his love of the French language and his views on Francophonie.

Elected to the French Academy in 2013, Dany Laferrière has produced around thirty novels and essay collections. A tireless worker, his spontaneity is revealed in his lively and passionate writing, that goes against the conventional grain, seeking to reflect the intimacy of events.
