Eva Baltasar

Lonely hunter's instinct

Debate

The poet and novelist Eva Baltasar talks with the journalist Magí Camps about Mamut, the closing of one of the most successful literary trilogies of recent years.

After ten books of poetry, in 2018 Eva Baltasar published Permafrost (Club Editor and Literatura Random House), an upsetting novel, which explored the body and the pleasure of women from the testimony of a suicidal lesbian, and that word-of-mouth turned into a phenomenon. Next up was Boulder (Club Editor and Literatura Random House, 2020), with a narrator describing the impact of motherhood from a remorseless introspection. Now closes the triptych Mamut (Club Editor and Literatura Random House, 2022), starring another of these wild and free heroines that only Eva Baltasar knows how to imagine.

"I like to generate a character and live through her, because, while I write, I am living that life", explained Baltasar during her last visit to Kosmopolis. In this conversation with the journalist Magí Camps, we will discover the universe hidden in Mamut, the latest work of this sculptress of language, where the search for solitude and the call of motherhood take us to a rural world where poetry, black humor and animality are not absent.

Moderators: Magí Camps
