Launch of the anthology ¿Por qué escribo?


In a time when anybody can write and be published without the need for editors or criteria, we ask what are the impulses that drive writers and what is the relevance of literature, from an intimate point of view, but also social and transcendental. Despite of the massive consumption and the standardised thought, our daily experience is still been defined by local idiosyncrasies. What is the role of the writers within this contradiction? What can we say here, from here, that cannot be said in other places? The texts included on this anthology could be read as an collective thought essay that tries to answer this questions: Mariana Hartasánchez and Anaclara Muro in conversation with Jacobo Zanella.

The inconceivable universe: Dreams of unity. José Gordon and Patricio Betteo in conversation with Inés Martín Rodrígo

In this fascinating work of non-fiction, the writer José Gordon takes us into an exercise of the imagination, in which science and literature, with their respective instruments, probe into a universe which challenges all our notions. With first-hand information from major scientists like Roger Penrose, Leonard Susskind and the Physics Nobel Laureate, George Smoot, we find the most audacious maps of our time, which aim to open new windows onto nature. These investigations, some of which are controversial, have the mystery and attraction of a good literary story skilfully mixed with the explorations of fiction writers like Isaac Bashevis Singer, Amos Oz and Fernando del Paso, who also follow the dream of a level of existence beyond the borders of space and time: Borges’s Aleph looms into view! The inconceivable universe, marvellously illustrated by Patricio Betteo, invites us to look through the keyhole at a memorable poetic and scientific journey of many strings and dimensions that will resonate in the reader’s imagination. In conversation with Inés Martín Rodrígo.
