Meet the writers: Amalia Tena

24 October 2023 @ 19:00 - 20:30

Te doy un caballo blanco de regalo, Amalia Tena’s debut roman has enjoyed great success in The Netherlands, thanks to the translation by Els Pelgrom, Jij krijgt van mij een wit paard cadeau (Ambo/Anthos). Tena was inspired by her own family to write the story of the Sotomayors, a wealthy family that has lost everything under Franco’s regime. Ana, the narrator, does not understand as a child all what happens around her, but she observes and captures it all.

The conversation with Tena organized by Instituto Cervantes will be led writer and journalist Herman Koch.
