Her most recent work is entitled Notes on Grief, and in it the author talks about her mourning after the death of her father, setting her thoughts within the context of the global pandemic, obliged to grieve at a distance since she was unable to leave the United States while her father was dying on another continent. This moving work will resonate with the experiences of millions of people around the world, at this moment of great trauma when grief, loss and death have become an even greater presence for so many people all over the planet.

Renato Cisneros and Gustavo Rodríguez in conversation with Jimena Díaz Zapater

Contemporary fathers

Escenario Digital Arequipa
Read more

Reflections on being a father and new masculinities, considering more open, loving and involved father-child relationships, is a theme that has attracted many writers. Two Peruvian authors, Renato Cisneros and Gustavo Rodríguez, will talk to Jimena Díez Zapater about this exploration, tackling the theme as writers and fathers. Renato Cisneros is a writer and journalist, the author of books such as La distancia que nos separa and Dejarás la tierra, as well as the essay Algún día te mostraré el desierto, bringing a critical and intimate perspective to fatherhood and its implications. The writer Gustavo Rodríguez, who has written novels such as La república de la papaya and Madrugada, presents the podcast Machista con Hijas, in which the author reflects on the sexism embedded in the society in which we live, based on a conversation with his three daughters. This experience has likewise turned into a book of the same name. They will talk to Jimena Díaz Zapater.
