The Indian author Jerry Pinto and Norwegian Ivo de Figueiredo both have Goan backgrounds, a region in India that has been heavily influenced by Portugal. These two authors have had different upbringings and different types of families but they both write within the genre known as narrative non-fiction. While their roots maybe Goan, they reside in dramatically different countries – how does this influence their memoirs and the way they write about family relationships.
Through the conversation between Jerry Pinto and Ivo de Figueiredo the stage is set for a meeting that spans time, place and literature.
The conversation will be moderated by Karin Haugen.
