Alia Trabucco Zerán wins the Eccles Centre & Hay Festival Writer’s Award 2023

Alia Trabucco Zerán was announced as one of the two winners of the 2024 Eccles Centre and Hay Festival Writer’s Award during a reception at the British Library on November 29th. Her novel Clean (4th Estate) is set to be released in the UK in June, and she has won the award for the next book, Impudence, which will combine a thriller with the diary of a female academic obsessively writing a book about the face following a prosthetic procedure. It will weave fiction with memoir and essay to explore portrayals of Latin American women and our relationship with the female face, identity and loss.

Judges said: "Alia Trabucco’s project, about identity, specifically that of women, will connect the literary work of a writer who is already one of Latin America more exciting voices with the quest to explore identities by writers and artists such as Frida Kahlo."
