New reading group cycle with Mariela Burani
This year we will plunge into the fascinating worlds of some modern and contemporary short story writers who present a myriad of topics full of psychological intensity, and symbolic and poetic potential. Diverse as these stories will be, they all share what Julio Cortázar described as the short story defining characteristic: “el cuento debe ganar por knockout”. Some of the authors who will accompany us through our reading journey are Djuna Barnes, Colm Tóibín, Margaret Atwood, Doris Lessing, and Ernest Hemingway. There will be two special sessions where we will read English translations of Japanese writer Taeko Kōno and Russian author Anton Chekhov.
