Martín Caparrós in conversation with Luz María Sierra

Ñamérica: the definitive story of an endless land

Jericó 2022, 

There is a region of the world where twenty countries and more than 400 million people share much in terms of language, history, culture, concerns and hopes. Yet we do not know this region well; what we really know are myths about it, reflections of it and certain notions these places have in common. We think of it as it was in other times. This region is called, or could be called, Ñamérica and this book by the great essayist Martín Caparrós (Argentina) aims to describe it and understand it as it is now. In conversation with Luz Marina Sierra, this internationally acclaimed writer and journalist tells us about his investigations into this great region, so diverse and complex.
