Nightmares in The European Bookshop - SOLD OUT
Posted by Pablo, on 16 October 2010. Comments: 0
The European Bookshop will host this terrifying evening to present "Tenebrario: doce pesadillas y un escalofrío". The book will be introduced to the public by Phillip Hall (researcher and writer of bestseller "Royal Fortune), and then, the author, Nina Melero, will read some selected excerpts of this collection of short stories in Spanish, followed by a reading of a translation into English of these excerpts. There will be a live interview conducted by Katy Darby, Editor of Litro Magazine (that will be published on their website).
Nina Melero teaches Spanish and Translation Studies at Kingston University and at the University of Westminster. Her publications include research articles on applied translation theory and literary translation as well as fiction. Some of her collections of short stories have been awarded literary prizes (Art Nalon Letras 2007, Planeta Jóvenes Talentos 2005 and 2007). Tenebrario is her latest collection of short stories. Nina is currently completing her next book, Mesías 2.0, a cyberpunk novel about inhumanity and the non-human.
The event will take place on 18th October at 6.30pm in The European Bookshop.
***16th October 2010 UPDATE***
The response has been overwhelming. We have probably reached our maximum capacity and we are sorry we will not be able to accept more requests, in order to ensure a proper and comfortable development of the event.
Product Description: Tenebrae: twelve shivers and a nightmare is a collection of short stories in which the inexplicable penetrates everyday life, altering it irreversibly and giving it a new meaning. The texture of nightmares, the impossibility of disappearing completely and the fear of intruders are some of the topics explored in this book, which is based on the certainty that it is only in the deforming mirror of the fantastic that we see ourselves clearly as we really are.
