Chilean author Franz and his translator, Leland H. Chambers, will read bilingually from the author’s latest award-winning novel. The Absent Sea explores the subject of the disappeared and, particularly, complicity during the Pinochet dictatorship (1973–90). Franz is an exponent of “The New Chilean Narrative” of the 1990s, a movement whose writers have distanced themselves from the tradition of magic realism and whose works employ spare, unadorned prose.

This program will be presented in English and Spanish.
