Manchester Literature Festival at the Cervantes


Andrés Neuman: Talking to Ourselves

ExhibitionThe Faces of Masculinity in Cuba

Friday 10th October, 6.30pm
Instituto Cervantes

Sooner or later, we all face loss. Spanish writer Andrés Neuman comes to Manchester to promote his new novel, Talking to Ourselves. Told in alternating narratives, it's the story of a family transformed by grief, journeying along the fringes of the Spanish speaking world and beyond the borders of their own moral comfort zone. The son of Argentine musicians who emigrated to Spain, Neuman has published numerous short stories, essays and poetry collections. His book Traveller of the Century was awarded the Alfaguara and national Critics Prizes, and was described in The Guardian as 'a beautiful, accomplished novel: as ambitious as it is generous, as moving as it is smart'. more info...

This exhibition is the personal work of photographer Javier Pinto Grajera and is a graphic representation of the different realities of Cuba in relation to masculinity. The images play with the ideas mentioned in some of the interviews the photographer did while he was there and the validated realities on the streets of Cuba, showing in a personal way the typical masculine-feminine stereotypes that appear in the island.more info...
The opening of the exhibition will be on the 10th of October at 20.00, after the presentation of writer Andrés Neuman. A food and drink reception will be served.

Please book in advanced on and 0161 6614206.
