Passa Porta Booktail: A podcast with Eduardo Halfon
Passa Porta’s breezy podcast summer series: literature shaken and stirred!
In this Booktail the Belgian writer and critic Roderik Six talks to Eduardo Halfon. Halfon was born in Guatemala in 1971 and moved to the United States at the age of 10, where he lived for many years. He currently lives in France. Halfons descendants came from countries as diverse as Ukraine, Egypt, Palestine, Spain, Lebanon, Syria and Poland. His complex family history is often a source of inspiration for his work, in which a series of remarkable stories form a meandering life journey around the world, in search of meaning, memories and certainties. A conversation about roots, identity, and new ways of storytelling.
