Javier Cercas and Juan Gabriel Vásquez

An evening with two of the most acclaimed authors writing in Spanish today

Javier Cercas is known among English-language readers as the author of Soldiers of Salamis (winner of the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize), The Anatomy of a Moment and The Impostor. His latest book, The Blind Spot, is an essential collection of literary criticism in which the author considers some of the most challenging novels of the last 100 years.

By contrast, The Shape of the Ruins, the latest novel by Juan Gabriel Vásquez (the multi-awarding winning author of The Sound of Things Falling) takes the form of personal and formal investigations into two political assassinations as a way of locating the seeds of the violence that has bedevilled Colombia since the beginning of the 20th century.
