Samanta Schweblin

Anatomy of restlessness

Debate

The writer Samantha Schweblin, considered one of the key voices of the new Latin American literature, talks with writer Jorge Carrión about her literary work in the edge of fantasy and horror.

In her short stories and novels, which have had an excellent reception around the world, the Argentine writer Samantha Schweblin has drawn an authentic atlas of strangeness and restlessness. Scweblin's stories, written from the margins of fantasy literature, capture the essence of family relationships and immerse us in a disturbing fictional universe that brings us closer to the fantastic and the terrifying.

In this dialogue, Schweblin talks with writer Jorge Carrión about her narrative, a work somewhere between uncomfortable realism, fantasy and science fiction.
