Meet Joel D. Hirst

Thank you for visiting my page! A little about myself; I am a writer, a traveler (when I can), mostly the lost places. I have recently released my fifth novel “The Unraveling“, about how things fell apart – apropos of the times, I guess, though that was not my intention. My 4th novel “I, Charles, From the Camps” is about a boy who was born in northern Uganda during the 25 year civil war and his attempts to make a life for himself, and why he fails – and why you or I would have done the same. I’ve also written “Lords of Misrule“, a story about the making and unmaking of a jihadist. My San Porfirio series, “The Lieutenant of San Porfirio” and its sequel “The Burning of San Porfirio“, are about socialist Venezuela. About how it collapsed and how it will be reborn. I have also written a play, “Dreams of the Defeated“, about a political prisoner in a totalitarian regime, dedicated to the Hong Kong kids and their fight for freedom.

    Hi Joel, I would like to congratulate you on a fantastic article about the suicide of Venezuela. Truly touching and eye-opening. I am editor-in-chief of inBRAZIL. A blog that discusses Brazil in English. I would like to invite you to write an article for us about Brazil “escaping” populism with the impeachment of Dilma and a change of the economic and institutional politics. Could you reply to this email so we could discuss further? fernanda.farina@inbrazil.net
    Thank you and congratulations!

    Bonjour Joel, j’ai adoré votre livre “le seigneur du chaos”, mais je ne trouve pas la traduction française de votre dernier livre. Auriez-vous des informations sur de futures traductions? Et si oui, pourriez vous les indiquer?
    Bien cordialement.
    Xavier.
