Continuous Programme 18. Imperfect Futures

Conversation between Rachel Cantor and Joan Miquel Oliver

Rachel Cantor, an American writer in residence at the Jiwar Association in Barcelona, and Joan Miquel Oliver, singer, composer and writer, talk with Andreu Gomila about dystopia as narrative material. Both authors have used this resource in the settings for their fictional works, Joan Miquel Oliver in Alexandra Schneider und ihr Casiotone (L’altra, 2018) and Rachel Cantor in A Highly Unlikely Scenario (Melville House, 2014). The universe, the humorous approach and the apocalyptic contexts are cross-cutting subjects of their novels.

Participants: Rachel Cantor, Joan Miquel Oliver, Andreu Gomila
