He won the 2020 Goncourt Prize, one of France’s top literary awards, for The Anomaly, a novel that explores the circumstances that unfold around a strange event: a plane from Paris bound for New York makes a difficult landing on March 10, 2021. Three months later, the exact same plane lands, with the same passengers and crew. In conversation with Felipe Restrepo Pombo.
