05.11.2016 - Albert Sánchéz Piñol

Catalan anthropologist Albert Sánchez Piñol is a specialist in the African Mbuti (pygmy) people, as well as an excellent writer. His worldwide break-through novel was Cold Skin, which tells the story of the battle two Europeans, one a lighthouse guard, the other a meteorologist, fight against an attacking force of giant frogs. Comparisons were drawn immediately to Joseph Conrad and Howard Phillips Lovecraft – not authors we would particularly mind being compared to.

At Crossing Border, Piñol will be discussing his latest novel Vae Victus. This is the seques of his bestselling novel Victus.
 Piñol will be interviewed by Maarten Steenmeijer. The interview languages are Dutch and Spanish.
