Mexican Writing, An Insider's View with Gabriel Orozco - Essays (2015 Event)

Artist Gabriel Orozco brings us two of Mexico's most highly-respected and best-known authors. Sergio González Rodríguez is a novelist and essayist famous for his groundbreaking writing about the serial murders of young women in the Ciudad Juárez, on the Mexico/US border. Juan Villoro is probably Mexico’s most versatile writer, his work covering an incredible diversity of topics, from boxing, soccer and pulp fiction to the Zapatista insurrection and the legacy of Mexico’s Cristero War. Incisive and often very funny, these brilliant authors offer a profound understanding of a complex country.
