Eduardo Sacheri, Luis García Montero, Abelardo Sánchez-León, in conversation with Patricia del Río
On the field of words
Football and literature, two spheres that raise passions and which can share territory, either in the world of fiction or in reporting on the world’s most popular sport. Of course, there are many writers who are also fans of “the most important of the least important things” in life. Luis García Montero, Spanish poet, Director of the Cervantes Institute and a sensitive observer of the game. Eduardo Sacheri (Argentina), author of The Secret in Their Eyes, a novel that contains a scene set in a football stadium; and Abelardo Sánchez-León (Peru), sociologist, journalist, poet and author of essays and non-fiction such as La balada del gol perdido, will talk to Patricia del Río.
