Ilija Trojanow in conversation with Gerardo Piña (Spanish version)

Querétaro 2021, 

The writer and translator Ilija Trojanow (Bulgaria/Germany) is the author of around 30 works of both fiction and non-fiction. He presents his book most recently translated into Spanish, Macht und Widerstand (“Power and Resistance”, 2015), which is a view of the history of Bulgaria during the second half of the 20th century, told through two characters, Metodi and Konstantin, who represent respectively power and resistance, in the context of the Communist regime. Trojanow talks to Gerardo Piña about this epic novel, a homage to the victims of Soviet oppression.
