Nona Fernández: Imagination Meets Evil

One of a generation of Chilean writers who grew up under the brutal dictatorship of General Pinochet, Nona Fernández offers new perspectives on history. She appears at the Festival for the first time, discussing her novel The Twilight Zone – described by the New York Times as a ‘major contribution to literature’ – which features a documentary writer obsessed with interviewing an infamous torturer about his hideous deeds. Chaired by writer and activist Jessica Gaitán Johannesson.

Nona Fernández is appearing remotely.
