Bernardo Atxaga and Juan Cruz Interviewed on Writers and Company

For the last episode of her excellent series on writers in Spain, Wtirers and Company interviews Bernardo Atxaga and Juan Cruz. Her conversation with Atxaga, a Basque writer, is definitely worth since that language doesn’t have a lot of exposure. I didn’t know much about its literary history and I was quite surprised to hear what he had to say. Cruz’s interview is interesting in a literary history sense. He explains the last 40 years of Spanish history and what that has meant for literature.
