Rosa Montero featured in La Voz and The Prisma
February 22, 2012
Aunt Lute author Rosa Montero is featured in La Voz magazine and The Prisma for her evocative writing and incisive views on the state of journalism.
Montero’s 1997 book La hija del cannibal (The Cannibal’s Daughter) was recently reviewed by Diana Casais as part of La Voz’s Literary café series. As Cassais explains, the novel illustrates “part of the cultural kaleidoscope of Spain in the ’90s, with stories of a past that rest in the memories of the Spanish people, creating a collective panorama of Spanish life.” The review is available on La Voz’s website, in both Spanish and English.
Montero’s second feature is at the multicultural newspaper The Prisma. The interview, conducted by Javier Duque and translated by David Buchanan, discusses topics such as celebrity journalism in tabloids, the increasingly political nature of news publications, and the role of technology. As a journalist for forty years and a winner of the National Journalism prize, Montero has strong, informed views on the role of the press. Montero also speaks about her fiction, specifically her newest book, the 2011 novel “Lagrimas en la lluvia” and her writing process.
