Marcos Giralt Torrente, Rodrigo Rey Rosa and Joumana Haddad with Guido Tamayo

What we talk about when we talk about love

Cartagena 2012, 
Love is a concept with a thousand and one definitions, and probably the subject most written about in the history of literature. However, we keep asking ourselves, again and again, about its meaning and relevance. Taking as a starting point the famous Raymond Carver story, we ask three writers from three different countries to talk to us about a matter that unites them: Marcos Giralt Torrente, Spanish winner of the 2011 National Narrative Prize for his work Tiempo de vida; Joumana Haddad, Lebanese poet, writer and editor whose latest book is I Killed Scheherazade; and Rodrigo Rey Rosa, the Guatemalan author, translated into English by Paul Bowles and whose latest work is Severina. Chaired by Guido Tamayo.
