BIBF International Writers 2015/7/23


Enrique Vila-Matas
Decorated with numerous awards in his native Spain–including the same PremioRómulo Gallegos that catapulted his friend Roberto Bola?o to international renown–Enrique Vila-Matas has pioneered one of contemporary literature’s most interesting responses to the great Modernist writers. Taking the Modernists as towering giants that will never be equaled, Vila-Matas works to inscribe himself–at times literally–in the margins of their works. His tools are irony, parody, paradox, and futility, and his goal is to mix fact, fiction, and autobiography in order to depict not reality but truth.


Alan Lee
Alan Lee is a book illustrator and film conceptual designer, best known for his work on the Lord of the Rings books and films. Over a career of several decades, he has illustrated the covers and interiors of dozens of fantasy books and children’s works, and created a distinctive visual style that has influenced a generation of artists and directors. He joined Peter Jackson and the creative team of the Lord of the Rings films to help transfer his visual style from the page to the screen, later reprising this role for the Hobbit trilogy.


Simon Van Booy
Simon Van Booy is the author of The Secret Lives of People in Love, “Love Begins in Winter” (winner of the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award), Everything Beautiful Began After, and The Illusion of Separateness (a national bestseller). His latest collection of stories, Tales of Accidental Genius, will be published in November 2015, and a new novel, Father‘s Day, will be released in February 2016.
He is the editor of three philosophy books, Why We Fight, Why We Need Love, and Why Our Decisions Don‘t Matter. His essays have appeared in the New York Times, the Financial Times, The Guardian, and ELLE Men (China)–where he writes the monthly ’New Yorker’ column. He has also written for the stage, National Public Radio, and the BBC.
Simon teaches part-time at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan, and frequently hosts creative writing courses. In 2013 he founded Writers for Children, a project which helps young people build confidence in their literary abilities through annual writing awards.
His fiction has been translated into seventeen languages.
