The Goncourt Academy awarded him the Prix Goncourt du Premier Roman for “Une éducation libertine” (A Libertine Education), at only age 28, and the French Academy, the Prix François Mauriac. Those prizes were followed by Prix Fénéon of University of Paris and Prix Laurent-Bonelli Virgin-Lire.

The talk, which will take place at PAVILION – center of contemporary art and culture, will point out the most common subjects of the well-known writer’s novels, will debate the new projects of Del Amo, and will connect literary practices with those of contemporary art. The debate will focus on the idea of literature as artistic practice and art as a narrative paradigm, and the way in which the two interact and complete each other.

The passion of Del Amo for film and photography will be the main subject of the discussion and it will be the header for the book the writer is working on.

After the dialog, the writer accepted to give autographs on the Romanian edition of “A Libertine Education”, translated by Vellant publishing house.

The dialogue will be in English.For interviews prior registration is necessary.
