Amélie Nothomb and Sergi Pàmies

The thirst for writing

Debate

The Belgian writer Amélie Nothomb talks with the translator Sergi Pàmies about her literary career, on the occasion of the publishing of her latest novel, Sed (Thirst).

After twenty-seven novels, Amélie Nothomb has created her own literary universe based on short books. She writes four each year and only publishes one, stories that can both explore aspects of her autobiography —her childhood in Japan, culture shock— and shake us with provocative plots. Sed (Anagrama, 2022) is a novel in which Nothomb offers us her personal view of the most universal, venerated and controversial character in Western history: Jesus of Nazareth.

At the CCCB, Amélie Nothomb talks with the writer Sergi Pàmies, who has translated all of her books into Spanish for Anagrama, about her graphomania - she writes at least four hours a day - and about the origin of her stories, which have made her one of the great authors of French literature.

Participants: Amélie Nothomb, Sergi Pàmies
