DISQUIET welcomes : Horacio Castellanos Moya 

The faculty list for DISQUIET 2012 just keeps getting better. This week, we're welcoming Horacio Castellanos Moya, who has been called one of the most important and challenging contemporary writers in the Spanish language. If you're not sure yet how excited you should be, reading an excerpt from Senselessness, the first of his nine novels to be translated into English, is a good place to start.  [Warning: May cause immediate purchase of Senselessness followed by an entire day of forgetting to eat].

If you're short on time, you could also read Scott Eposito's essay on Horacio Castellanos Moya and the New Politcal Novel at  The Quarterly Conversation, or this 2009 interview with New Directions.

Born in Honduras and raised in El Salvador, Castellanos Moya spent twelve years as a journalist in Mexico City and has lived in Costa Rica, Guatemala, Spain, Tokyo, and Germany. He currently lives in Pittsburgh. 

His other books currently available in English are  The She-Devil in the Mirror (New Directions, 2009),  Dance with Snakes (Biblioasis, 2009), and the recent  Tyrant Memory (New Directions, 2011).

An excerpt from Tyrant Memory is available, along with an interview with Chad W. Post, at Read This Next.
