Ana María Shua – Interview Video in English, Short Stories, and Other Things

Now that I’ve read a little of Ana María Shua’s newest book, I can say I liked some of it. Some of the circus stories were OK, others such as Evolución del Circo were quite interesting. The blog La nave de los locos has a couple more excerpts of her work.

The Spanish culture program also had an interview with her: El ojo crítico – Ana María Shua y su circo de relatos breves – 09/09/11 . It was a good interview and they go over why she wrote a circle of stories about circuses.

Finally, Revista de Letras has this video from Shua explaining her early life, especially the dictatorship in Argentina. It is in Spanish with English subtitles.
