Alessandro MARI

Invité au festival Livres & Musiques 2016

Born in 1980 in Busto Arsizio in Lombardy, Alessandro Mari is a specialist of Thomas Pynchon, on whom he wrote his thesis. He works in publishing. His first novel, Les folles espérances, was welcomed by Italian critics as a great revelation.

Alessandro Mari, for Les folles espérances, is in the running for the 2015 Medicis Prize (category "foreign novels"), the 2015 Best Foreign Book Prize (category "novels") and the Jean-Carrière Prize.

 

Il sera présent :

Sat April 16 /4pm - Villa Le Cercle - Italy in Deauville Program
NEW WAVE
Meeting with Filippo D'angelo, Giorgio Fontana & Alessandro Mari
Here are three young voices, three of the rising stars of Italian literature. Fully original voices. The first delivers, with The end of the other world, a provocative prose. The second, with Death of a Happy Man, won the famous Campiello Prize, making him one of the most talented young writers of the generation. The third made himself famous with a remarkable first novel, Les folles espérances, and is the Italian translator of Patti Smith. The three of them have created a portrait of Italy through their novels and have created a unique literary work that should be discovered without delay.
