EÑE 45. The choices made by Belén Gopegui
Delivery policy (edit with Customer reassurance module)
Eñe reaches spring 2016 in the hands of Belén Gopegui. Until now it was always the Eñe team which proposed the matters to be discussed and the writers who would decide what to write on them. But why not offer the possibility to a writer, a voice of authority with their own passions and which would possibly lead to the discovery of new writers? The gauntlet was thrown down to Belén Gopegui who picked it up with a combination of generosity and commitment while putting her shoulder to the wheel, the result of which is of the highest quality and extremely eclectic: poetry and prose from here and from there, youthful and mature, new and established. In the texts commissioned and carefully brought together by Gopegui, there is a little of everything and all of it united by an indisputable quality to the writing. The external vision of eight writers (Natalia Carrero, Gleyvis Coro Montanet, Roberto Enríquez, Nacho Fernández Rocafort, Erich Hackl, Olga Novo, Javier Rodríguez Fernández and the coupling comprised of Carlos Senin and Omar Neri), together with the panoramic vision of Gopegui who overflies their writings to configure a very special edition of Eñe which uncovers new perspectives, histories and voices. A true gift to the reader.
This edition is illustrated, starting with the cover with the incomparable images of Chema Madoz, one of the outstanding names in art today. Three incredible photographs which we are proud to be able to publish in Eñe. Yet another gift of incalculable value.
Together with the choices made by Belén Gopegui, other writers speak to us in this edition: Manuel Rivas allows us to read his end-of-year diary, a troubled literary exercise where there are more questions than answers. There are answers of course – both clear and brilliant – in the interview by Antón Castro with Almudena Grandes. The Chilean author Pablo Simonetti in turn asks us who we are while Jorge Edwards leads us to dream of summer in Santiago de Chile and finally, the most recent Loewe Prize-winner, Víctor Rodríguez Núñez presents us with one of his most solid poems and Sergio del Molino reflects ironically on the betrayal of the anniversary of Cervantes.
