Philippe Claudel is the author of well-known books including Grey Souls and Brodeck which, with an atmosphere enshrouded in mystery, deal with the events of the past and how they determine our perception of the present. Claudel, who is also a film director, has received numerous recognitions of his literary merit since the early stages of his career and is one of French literature’s most outstanding figures. At this event he will talk to Felipe Restrepo Pombo about his latest novels, Inhumaines (2017) and L’archipel du chien (2018), in which Claudel uses the fable form to question the most absurd and alienating facets of our existence, subtly undertaking a biting criticism of today’s society.
