The Eurovision Song Contest in Portugal was a very lively event. From the Terreiro do Paço to the Parque das Nações, there was a lively excitement that made it possible to feel the music and see the day with new eyes. The poetry of the good disposition, of the endless waits in the queues, of the musical tourism, of the multiple flags.

It was worth knowing the Eurovision radio ...

It was worth seeing friends from Australia.
There is poetry even in kangaroos.

And although the winning song is not the one that, in poetic terms or the transmitted message, is the favorite of this blog, it has a happy rhythm that is worth knowing. Congratulations to Israel!

During the Book Market Fair in Lisbon (2017) it was possible to interview Paula Hawkins. It was a very exciting experience and a privilege to speak with a writer with such a big success in thriller novels. Her answers were very important to us in order to better understand who is a writer and how life influences their work.

 

 

What does being a writer mean to you?

Writing is more a vocation than a profession: I’m lucky enough to be able to earn a living by doing it, but I think I would write – just as I always have written – even if I wasn’t published.  Since childhood I have relished making up stories: it took until I was in my thirties to find the confidence to show those stories to others, but the urge to create fiction has never left me.

 

Which season of your life do you think had the most influence on your writing?

Possibly my late teens/early twenties, which was the time at which I left Zimbabwe, where I grew up, and moved to London, where I live now. Those years were turbulent, and often lonely – I wrote a great deal at the time. At nineteen, I moved to Paris and lived there for a year. That was the first time I had lived alone, in a foreign city, speaking a language I struggled to master. It was lonely, again, but exciting too.

 

Is it possible for a writer to create their work without consideration for the feelings of the people around them?

I think perhaps it is possible, though I’m not sure that it should be. Writing is, for me, an exercise in empathy, in understanding others, in being able to place yourself in the position of another and imagine their thoughts and feelings. It would be strange then if while imagining the thoughts and feelings of fictional characters, one were to ignore the feelings of the real people in the society we live in.

In the Restaurant "Esquina de Alfama" it was possible to find a group of Fadistas that animate the night with their voices and guitars, to the point that we feel confused between the traditional and the shine of the mobile phones that appear in the hands of the visitors anxious to take with themselves a bit of the atmosphere of the restaurant.
We feel a peace that invades us by the unexpected way Fado takes care of us, there in the middle of the Old Lisbon, surrounded by modernity. Not far away, during the day, you can see huge boats that are full of tourists from all over the world. These boats are adventurers of the seas, of a capacity far superior to the Titanic. Its immense dimension rivals the depth of what we feel in places so small and filled with music but so great in history and quality.
We know that the public often does not understand the lyrics, but that does not matter to anyone. The music imposes itself without further ado and all of us there commune with a state of soul that fills us with dreams, pieces of past that only existed as an approximation between what we imagined and what really was ...
So, packed with melody and the famous trill of guitars, a common place so often remembered, we almost forgot to taste the food on the tables, right there in front of us. It is also of immense quality, it is also full of flavors with millennial stories ... And in the end, nothing better than a visit in a day of peace.
