Episode 18: Álvaro Enrigue
Internationally acclaimed Mexican author Alvaro Enrigue and New York City author Garth Risk Hallberg (City on Fire) start with Enrigue’s genre-bending book Sudden Death — which starts with a 16th century tennis match — to launch a far-ranging conversation. Topics covered include political anger and artistic style, the history of racist narratives (“moments in which the world crunched and the bad guys imposed a discourse”), inventing historical events (“the weirdest stuff is true”), paintings made of feathers, and the embarrassing demands of both authors’ children.
