Fernanda Melchor: Think Twice

While Fernanda Melchor was completing her International Booker Prize shortlisted Hurricane Season, she came across the story of a town whose residents were removed from their land so that a luxury gated community could be built. The idea that violence could be born in the heart of ‘paradise’ underpins her latest novel, the furious and beguiling Paradais, translated by Sophie Hughes. Join Melchor as she exposes the violence lurking underneath society, in conversation with Chris Power.
