​Conversaciones literarias.png

Interviews, with contextual critical material, with nine celebrated contemporary Hispanic novelists.


Nine of today's most celebrated Hispanic writers reveal themselves and their concerns, and how the latter are reflected in their work. The writers are Ricardo Piglia, Antonio Muñoz Molina, Juan José Millás, José María Merino, Enrique Vila-Matas, Quim Monzó, Cristina Fernández Cubas, Pedro Zarraluki and Ray Loriga.

The interviews allow readers closer personal acquaintance with the subjects, their fiction and their cultural circumstances, in the process touching on major intellectual issues of today - the definition of reality, the role of art and the challenge of otherness.

Each conversation is introduced by an essay commenting on the main themes in the author's works. The book contains a detailed bibliography and an extensive general introduction, which presents the intellectual context for the issues discussed.
