Event 43

Soledad Puértolas in conversation with Angélica Tanarro

The music of the novel

Venue: La Alhóndiga

Since she published Bandido doblemente armado (‘Two Gun Bandit’) four decades ago, Soledad Puértolas’ literary career has not stopped growing, in depth and in acclaim, for both short stories such as ‘Adiós a las novias’ (‘Farewell to brides’), ‘El fin’ (‘The End’), or ‘Chicos y chicas’ (‘Boys and Girls’), and for her novels Queda la noche (‘Night is all that´s left’), Una vida inesperada (‘An unexpected life’), La rosa de plata (‘The silver rose’). Puértolas, one of the most important figures in contemporary Spanish literature, takes a direct and committed look at women and social circumstances, which she has once again examined in her latest novel, Opera Music. She holds a chair at the RAE (Royal Academy of Letters) and talks with Angelica Tanarro, a journalist specialising in culture and a writer herself.
