Ignacio Martínez de Pisón in conversation with Dante Trujillo

On conflict and literature

Arequipa 2022, 

Ignacio Martínez de Pisón (Spain) is the author of over 15 books of essay, novel and short stories. He is known for novels such as Derecho natural (2017), Filek (2018) and Fin de temporada (2020), and the long essay Enterrar a los muertos (Seix Barral, 2005), which won the Rodolfo Walsh and Dulce Chacón prizes and was much praised by reviewers and critics in several European countries. In his last book, Partes de guerra (2022), an anthology of stories about the Spanish Civil War, Martínez de Pisón carries out a publishing and literary task by compiling examples of the collective memory, voices that tell of the horrors, heroes and, above all, the history of a conflict that spilled across sides and boundaries. More than 30 Spanish writers give their particular view of the war, mediated by the excellent prose of Martínez de Pisón. In conversation with the author and journalist Dante Trujillo.
