Irene Solà in conversation with Yásnaya Elena Aguilar

Querétaro 2023, 

Irene Solà (Spain) is the author of the publishing success When I Sing, Mountains Dance (2019), written in Catalan and translated into Spanish and many other languages, published in over a dozen editions and winner of the 2019 Cálamo Prize and the 2020 European Prize for Fiction. This polyphonic novel, set in the high Pyrenees, tells the story of farmers, poets, witches, mothers and ghosts, surrounded by the magnificence of the exuberant and relentless natural world of the high Pyrenees. Solá will talk to Yásnaya Elena Aguilar about this extraordinary novel and her new book, Et vaig donar ulls i vas mirar les tenebres, a story of living and dead women in a rural context, presented for the first time in Mexico.
