November 2013


Our November 2013 online issue features an interview with Spanish novelist (and King of Redonda) Javier Marías. Described by the New York Times Book Review as 'one of the most original writers today' Marias' Your Face Tomorrow trilogy was declared by the Guardian to be 'the first authentic literary masterpiece of the twenty-first century'. This interview, conducted by the British poet Oli Hazzard, touches on his writing practice, the influence of his work as a translator on his own writing, and why Spanish football referees all have two surnames. Elsewhere, we're thrilled to be publishing Marina Warner and Clare Finburgh's new translations of the Moroccan poet Abdelfattah Kilito's 'miniatures'; an essay by David Shields on the history of plagiarism across art forms; short stories by Guatemalan novelist Eduardo Halfon (identified as being among the best young Latin American writers by the Hay Festival of Bogotá) and Iphgenia Baal; and an essay on the art of re-enactment by Natasha Hoare.
