Relive the event

In this new session of Literary Cafés, literary critic Jorge Carrión will talk to writer Eloy Fernández Porta about his new book, Los brotes negros (The Black Flare-ups). Fernández Porta offers a self-portrait in which he crudely explains the symptoms of a prolonged anxiety disorder. The essay will lead to a conversation about mental health and the risks of one of the most widespread illnesses today.

Eloy Fernández Porta (Barcelona, 1974) has a PhD in Humanities from the UPF, with the Extraordinary Doctorate Award. He has published essays in Anagrama: Afterpop, Homo Sampler, €RO$ (Anagrama Award), Emociónese así (Ciutat de Barcelona Award), En la confidencia, Las aventuras de Genitalia and Normativa and, in Catalan, L'art de fer-ne un gra massa.
