Felipe Franco Munhoz

Felipe Franco Munhoz was born in São Paulo, Brazil, in 1990. The novel Mentiras, his debut, which was awarded the 2010 Bolsa Funarte de Criação Literária (a grant from the Brazilian National Foundation for the Arts), was published in 2016 (Nós)....

It was followed by the closet play Identidades (Nós, 2018) and by the poetry-drama mixture Lanternas ao nirvana (Record, 2022). From the Russian, he translated O Cavaleiro de Bronze e outros poemas (Kalinka, 2022), a selection of Pushkin’s poetry, including the first complete version ever published in Brazil of “The Bronze Horseman.” In 2023, Franco Munhoz was awarded a writing residency at Art Omi: Writers (New York, USA); to Art Omi, Tom Stoppard wrote: “An experimentalist in the best sense, a true modernist. His published texts are not like any other texts I have seen: just to look at them tells you he is pushing boundaries.”
