The True Actor is translated from Portuguese, and is the third novel by writer, musician, and playwright Jacinto Lucas Pires. The True Actor recounts the story of the grotesque character, down-on-his-luck actor Americo Abril who is confounded by the various roles he plays in real life—weary dad, blocked artist, henpecked husband, miserable lover—and the role he lands in the avant-garde film Being Paul Giamatti. Jacinto Lucas Pires’ The True Actor manages both a postmodern boondoggle and a touching story of identity and love and loss in austerity-era Portugal.

Jacinto Lucas Pires with translator, Dean Thomas Ellis discuss and sign their book, The True Actor. 

This book is available in paperback ($14.95). 

If you are unable to attend, you must call the book shop to order signed books.
