French Author Emmanuel Carrere Wins Mexico’s 2017 FIL Literature Award

GUADALAJARA, Mexico – French author Emmanuel Carrere has been selected to receive the 2017 Guadalajara International Book Fair (FIL) Literary Award in Romance Languages, the judging panel announced Monday, emphasizing the “versatile, broad and transversal” nature of his work.

A writer, journalist, critic, screenwriter and moviemaker, Carrere navigates the different genres with “apparent ease,” a talent that has made him “one of today’s most read and influential” authors, the panel’s spokesman, Venezuela’s Gustavo Guerrero, said at the announcement.

In Carrere’s work, Guerrero continued, the autobiographical acquires a dimension that allows him to explore “zones of shadow in the contemporary condition.”

Born in Paris in 1957, Carrere has built a career during which he has produced “La Classe de neige” (1995), “The Adversary” (2000), “A Russian Novel” (2007), “Lives Other than My Own” (2009), “Limonov” (2011), and “The Kingdom” (2014).

In a telephone conference from Paris, Carrere said he was “honored” to receive the prize, thus adding himself to a list of authors whom he reads and admires.

He said that during his career, literature and journalism have had equal importance. He also argued that sometimes one genre is born from another, as occurred with his work “Limonov,” which began as reporting and ended up being transformed into a novel.

The prize, which comes with a cash stipend of $150,000, will be presented on Nov. 25 at the inauguration of the 31st Guadalajara book fair, the Spanish-speaking world’s most important literary fair and at which this year Madrid is the guest of honor.
