RAÜL MARTÍNEZ FUENTES
From Monday, 1 October 2018 to Saturday, 6 October 2018
Despite having participated with small contributions in various anthologies, Raül still considers himself an unpublished author, immersed in his first strictly personal work: the writing of a social and polyphonic novel. His writing has been his main activity since he graduated in Literary Studies at the University of Barcelona. Since then, and in parallel with the work of his book, he has travelled around Asia and studied the social, political and philosophical bridges that link East and West.
During my stay at Faber I’m going to work on my novel. In it, I introduce a group of teenagers who, in the summer between high school and university, discover the intimate nature of adulthood: the need to make decisions and deal with their consequences.
