Talk with David Fauquemberg - Sat. 21 March
David Fauquemberg traveled intermittently to faraway places such as Patagonia and Lapland, and sailed across the Atlantic. He spent two years in Australia, the inspiration for his first novel, Nullarbor (2007), winner of the Nicolas Bouvier Prize for travel writing. Mal tiempo (2009), which has a boxing theme and is set in Cuba, was awarded several prizes. His most recent novel Manuel el Negro (2013), is the result of a long stay in the world of Andalucia flamenco gypsies.
