El Impostor

El Impostor

Javier Cercas thumbnailGuillermo Bravo 2

Javier Cercas, Chen Zhongyi; moderated by Guillermo Bravo

Javier Cercas, one of the most important writers in Spain today, sits with Chen Zhongyi, a Cervantes expert and Spanish translator, for a cross-cultural dialogue moderated by Argentinian writer, editor, and journalist Guillermo Bravo. Cercas is in China to present his latest novel, El Impostor (Chinese translation available), which centers around the exploits of Enric Marco, who in real life lied about serving time in a German concentration camp. The panelists will compare Marco with Don Quixote, as both characters take up new identities to escape their reality.

This event is supported by the Embassy of Spain in Beijing, the Cervantes Institute, and People’s Literature Publishing House. It will be in Spanish with simultaneous Chinese interpretation.

This event will be held at the Cervantes Institute of Beijing. Reservation is required by emailing cult1pek@cervantes.es (please include your phone number in the email).
