Santiago Gamboa in conversation with Daniel Pardo

Cartagena 2022, 

How deep do the wounds of violence seep into a society like Colombia's? Santiago Gamboa, one of the most remarkable storytellers of the Colombian literary landscape, addresses this theme in his most recent book, Colombian Psycho, second novel of a forthcoming trilogy, after Será larga la noche. In Colombian Psycho, Gamboa portrays the national reality with an intriguing and insightful pace, that shifts between reality and fiction. With diverse characters which include a bold prosecutor, a polyamorous indigenist professor, an argentinian mercenary and Santiago Gamboa himself, the reader enters a story of suspense that begins with the discovery of human bones in the mounts of La Calera, at the East of Bogotá. In conversation with the journalist Daniel Pardo.
