The Thin Line Between Horror and Reality (virtual -event in Spanish)

Contemporary Latin American authors frequently explore the tension between horror and humanity, unearthing personal and historical trauma while examining the dark side of our interconnected world. From those intimately affected by violence in Colombian Juan Gabriel Vásquez‘s Songs for the Flames (translated by Anne McLean), to the sociopolitical horror of Argentine Mariana Enríquez‘s The Dangers of Smoking in Bed (translated by Megan McDowell), these two leading authors of their generation illuminate the daily realities of the macabre. Moderated by Idra Novey.
