With Mónica Ojeda and Ricardo Romero

Two literary positions from South America, twice fantasy: In Ricardo Romero’s La habitación del presidente every house has a mysterious room that is only for the president. In Mandíbula by Mónica Ojeda, schoolgirls Fernanda and Annelise are eerily alike. They share many things until Fernanda finds herself alone and tied up in an abandoned hut. The authors talk about magical realism and horror today and narrative echoes, from Italo Calvino to H. P. Lovecraft and Steven King to Julio Cortázar.

Moderation: Hernán D. Caro

Languages: Spanish and German
