Percival Everett is both singular and engaging. He is a major author of the contemporary literary scene as well as a brilliant academic. His work covers a large spectrum of genres and styles, from the social and political satire to more realistic texts and poetry. His latest novel THE TREE was shortlisted for the prestigious Booker Prize in 2022 (“Eerie, provocative, blackly comic Southern noir”, say the judges). Alexandre Westphal´s film focuses on the work of the writer and on the magical process by which the stories are constructed on paper.
