Daniel Samper Pizano, Jordi Puntí and Juan Esteban Constaín with Carlos Castillo
Football and literature
Football has always been linked to the spoken word, to radio commentary, to the sports newspapers. The game forms part of our culture and has played an important role in stories and novels. But can we consider sport to be culture? We propose a “match” of words with the following players: two Colombian writers (Daniel Samper Pizano and Juan Esteban Constaín) and a Spanish writer (Jordi Puntí). The referee will be Carlos Castillo.
