Conversation between Martín Caparrós and María del Mar Peregrín about the book El mundo entonces.
The Centro Andaluz de las Letras has scheduled a series of talks entitled Encuentros en el Centro (Encounters at the Centre) in the eight provincial capitals of the Andalusia region. At these events nationally and internationally prestigious writers present their latest works to the public in the form of conversations with other authors, journalists or cultural managers.
On this occasion Martín Caparrós and María del Mar Peregrín talk about El mundo entonces (‘The world then’) Caparrós’s latest book, in which the author explores the world we live in from the perspective of a future twenty-second-century woman historian who analyses the main elements of the social and political organisation of our present.
Martín Caparrós (Buenos Aires, 1957) earned a history degree in Paris and has lived in Madrid, New York and Barcelona. With experience in written journalism, radio and television, he has been chief editor of magazines on books and cooking, and has translated Voltaire, Shakespeare and Quevedo. Among other achievements, he has received the Guggenheim fellowship and the Planeta and Herralde prizes for novels as well as the Ortega y Gasset award for journalism. He has published more than thirty books in over thirty countries.
