Julian Fuks

Julián Fuks is one of Brazil’s rising literary talents who has won or been nominated for a clutch of prestigious prizes and seen his work translated into more than 10 languages. Julián was born in São Paulo in 1981 and is the son of Argentinian parents. His novel, Resistance, is an examination of family, identity, belonging and different forms of exile and was the winner of the Jabuti Award for Book of the Year, the Oceanos Prize, the José Saramago Literary Prize and the Anna Seghers Prize.

During 2017, Julián Fuks worked alongside Mia Couto as part of the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative. His new novel, Occupation (translated by Daniel Hahn) is published later this year and is a kind of sequel to Resistance and his second book to appear in English; it’s a narrative alternating between the writer’s conversations with refugees occupying a building in downtown São Paulo, his father’s sickness, and his wife’s pregnancy.

Julián Fuks discusses how the past year in Brazil has affected his own life and writing and how the terrible death toll has affected his fellow citizens.

This is one beautiful book.
