Philip Ball has written over 20 books about molecular chemistry and science in the 21st century, as well as works of biography and fiction. His latest book is How to Grow a Human, a work in which Ball, based on an experiment carried out on cells extracted with his own skin, explains to the reader how almost any kind of cell can be converted into another, different kind. Would it be possible to create a complete human being? In conversation with the BBC Mundo journalist, Juan Carlos Pérez.
Miguel Brieva is the author of several comic books, including La gran aventura humana (2017), La Odisea Ilustrada (2020) and the series Dinero (2008, 2017), a satirical look at the capitalist system and hyperconsumption, published originally in black and white and then, almost a decade later, in colour. Miguel Brieva’s work is testimony to the versatility of graphic humour and its potential to deal with universal and cutting-edge themes.

Perhaps the longest journey is the journey into our own interiors. Among the wide variety of Spanish writers, there is one who has given us some truly enlightening work, writings that can help us to explore inside of ourselves. His name is Pablo d’Ors, writer, priest, founder of the association Amigos del Desierto (“Friends of the Desert”) and author of Biografía del silencio. Here is a figure who can help us to discover what is most important in life. In conversation with Enrique Planas.
