Montreal writer Dany Laferrière became “Immortal” in 2015 when he was inducted into the Académie française, the highest accolade in all French literature. He was the first Quebecer to be so honoured, and only the second Black man.
In these wide-ranging interviews with Adam Leith Gollner, portions of which were originally published in The Paris Review, Laferrière reveals how his life and his writing are inseparable, discussing everything from his breakout debut, How To Make Love To a Negro Without Getting Tired, to the extraordinary success of more recent novels such as The Return and I Am a Japanese Writer.
Brilliant, comedic, and full of insightful advice for writers and readers, these conversations also serve as the definitive introduction to one of our greatest storytellers.
