Samuél Lopez-Barrantes

About me:

I’ve lived as a writer, musician & teacher in Paris since 2010. My first novel, “Slim & The Beast (2015),” was a coming-of-age story about male intimacy & the pursuit of passion.

My next novel (coming 2023) is about history, memory, and the Nazi Occupation of Poland.

I’m most interested in how we derive meaning in life through art, love, intoxication & power, but also via the myriad fictions & truths we tell ourselves in the in-between.

I currently teach creative writing at the Sorbonne and host literary walks & virtual salons in Paris, which keeps me oscillating between the worlds of creativity and academia.
