A special issue of Eñe that pays homage to Peru and its writers
Delivery policy (edit with Customer reassurance module)
Since Mario Vargas Llosa wrote the famous beginning of Conversation in the Cathedral, writers of extraordinary talent and remarkable diversity haven’t ceased to emerge in Peru. Peru and Spain have always shared connected universes and, in this issue of Eñe, writers from both countries talk to one another, mix their suitcases full of objects, and make literary confessions.
On the occasion of Lima International Book Fair 2018, in which Spain is a guest of honor, an exhibition will be on show that brings together the most important objects in the lives of several Spanish and Peruvian contemporary writers. That exhibition is turned into a collective literary diary in the pages of Eñe.
Also, Santiago Rocangoglio speaks about the books of his life, Fernando Iwasaki opens up the doors of his personal library and Alfredo Bryce Echenique, one of the greatest living Peruvian authors, goes over his literary career and remembers one of the great teachings of the Latin American Boom generation: it was possible to write the world in which one had been born—in the precise language in which one had learnt to do so.
