Critic and publisher Ignacio Echevarría will interview the one of the most brilliant prose writers in the Spanish language at Agustí Centelles Library following the re-edition of 'Las afueras'.
The surname Goytisolo has a deep literary resonance in Spain, where three brothers - Juan, José Agustín and Luis – made up a family of novelists, essayists and poets with a combined literary production that knows no rivals. Of the three brothers, Luis Goytisolo is the youngest, and the only one that is still with us today - Juan having passed on last year - and at this point in his career, at the age of 82, he is submitting his body of work to a profound review. He has recently collected his main works in a single volume titled Antagonía, and the publishing house Anagrama is set to republish his first novel, Las afueras, which was written in the bleak period following the Spanish Civil War. The novel deals critically with a a poor and backward Spain and gave early warning of the deeply combative and nonconformist nature of his prose. In the light of the republishing of this early literary work, Luis Goytisolo will participate in a conversation with critic and publisher Ignacio Echevarría at the Biblioteca Esquerra de l'Eixample-Agustí Centelles.
As well as being one of the most important contemporary Spanish literary critics, Ignacio Echevarría is an expert on the work of Goytisolo and an insightful analyst and charismatic communicator who will provide us with the keys for a better understanding of his literary production.
