In his novel El joven sin alma, Vicente Molina Foix evokes Spain in the mid-20th century and makes his protagonist -and his readers- find new life through a passion for film, poetry and life itself. The novel is enriched by the writer’s own experiences being brought up in a country where echoes of the Spanish Civil War could still be heard. Sergio del Molino covers this same Spain through the gaze of his teacher Antonio Aramayona, whose experiences form the basis of his book La mirada de los peces. These writers will talk to the Mexican journalist Eliezer Budasoff so that, by reviewing a Spain of the past, we may have a clearer view of the Spain of the present.
