Jean-Baptiste Del Amo in conversation with Felipe Restrepo Pombo

Querétaro 2022, 

Jean-Baptiste Del Amo is one of the most outstanding writers in contemporary French fiction. Une éducation libertine (2008) won the Goncourt First Novel Prize. It was followed by Le sel (2010), Pornographia (2013) and Animalia (2019). His most recent novel, Le fils de l’homme (2022), tells the story of a man who is reunited with his partner and his son after a long absence, and who takes them to live in a house in a remote mountain area, as his own father once did with him. The mother and child soon feel claustrophobic under the father’s control. In conversation with Felipe Restrepo Pombo.
