Book launch: Inventing Love by José Ovejero
9 May 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm|
Luis Vives Hall|
The Office for Cultural and Scientific Affairs (Embassy of Spain) and the Instituto Cervantes London present the launch of Inventing Love by José Ovejero. The author has written seven novels, as well as several collections of short stories and essays, and is considered one of the most relevant contemporary writers in Spain. He has been awarded a variety of prizes such as the Anagrama prize for his essay La ética de la crueldad (The Ethics of Cruelty); or the Alfaguara Prize for the novel lunched on this occasion. Translated by Simon Deefholts and Kathryn Phillips-Miles, Inventing Love is Ovejero’s second novel to be translated into English. This existential thriller of first mistaken and then stolen identity brilliantly exposes the fictions people create to sustain themselves in a dehumanising modern world.
The author will talk about his book and Dr Gareth Wood will conduct the Q&A at the Luis Vives Hall (Embassy of Spain) on the 9th May. The book launch and talk will be followed by a drinks reception.
