French authors Jean-Marie Blas de Roblès, Zeina Abirachedand David Prudhomme join an impressive international roster of literary stars at the Brooklyn Book Festival this September. These three authors represent some of the most exciting and innovative literature coming out of France, in both prose and graphic fiction.
Blas de Roblès's epic novel Where Tigers are at Home has made a critical splash in the United States since it was published in translation by Mike Mitchell in March 2013 (Other Press). A Game for Swallows: To Die, to Leave, to Return,Zeina Abirached’s graphic novel account of her childhood in Lebanon in the 1980s, is a Batchelder Honor Book and recipient of a French Voices Grant. Comic book author David Prudhomme’s graphic novel Rebetiko, named the “best graphic novel of 2010” by Lire magazine, is available in English from Self Made Hero.
